From the catalog essay: A bestiary or bestiarum vocabulum was a book popular in the Middle Ages which contained illustrated descriptions of various animals, birds and even rocks. The natural history and illustration of each beast was typically accompanied by a moral lesson. In addition to providing intriguing interpretations of animals, bestiaries offered tales about the existence of bizarre and loathsome mythical creatures. Since that time animals have appeared in the visual arts in everything ranging from decoration to symbols and allegories.
