Beauty and the Beast


Part of my 'Tales of the Faether' exhibition.

Many analysts believe animal bridegroom tales are intended to alleviate a maiden's fears of the marriage bed. While her husband may appear to be a beast before their marriage, she will learn that he is simply a caring man once the marriage is consummated. The tuatara, a reptile endemic to New Zealand, is part of a distinct lineage and the two species in New Zealand are the only surviving members of its order, which flourished around 200 million years ago. They are born with a third eye at the top of their head. Pretty cool.
