I wanted this work to represent animals disguised as humans; to show similarities between humans and animals, and that we are equals.
My research included modern artists and classical art; from the surrealism of Sammy Slabbinck, to the exhibition on Ancient Egypt at New Walk Museum and Art Gallery.
I was particularly inspired by the work of Charlotte Caron; how she uses a smudge of the animal head. This helped me represent the merge between animal nature and human life.
