Animal Artists

This is what you would expect to see in a zoology museum right. Well this plus loads of other creepy specimens, and I did! Moles in jars, brains of every imaginable animal, worms and leeches and other things that make you feel decidely squeemish.
What I hadn't expected to find was the display of paintings done by animals.
Don't believe me? Then go check it out at the Grant Museum at the University College London.

A good museum I never got around to visit sadly.

I wouldn't expect anything less from the universisty that has Jeremy Bentham's skeleton dressed and sitting in the lobby. I met with one of the deans a few years ago and he took us on a tour. I was amazed at the huge collection on Egyptian artifacts in one of the museums there. But, I must admit, I didn't see this museum. Sounds just as interesting as the others I saw.

Always fascinating to see preserved remains. I liked the glass sculpture of the snail on the Grant Museum website.
