Hiding in the empty lion cages at the Warsaw Zoo

This is one of my final images for the mini exhibition. On the one side are the empty lion cages, and on the other side I have shown the more furnished side of the zoo "villa" as it was called in the book, and also the culture of collecting, specimen hunting and acquisition of knowledge that is characteristic of zoology, in the curiosity cabinet, or museum casing and stuffed animal trophy, that would have entailed hunting and trapping in exotic lands for the business that lay behind zookeeping.
