Catalogue Note

'If you consider what conveys situation and meaning and feeling in a human figure, the range of expression is in fact far more limited than the device of investing an animal – a hare especially – with the expressive attributes of a human being. The ears, for instance, are really able to convey far more than a squint in the eye of a figure, or a grimace on the face of a model.'  BARRY FLANAGAN
