Familiar, animal inspired show at Modern Eden Gallery.

In European folklore and folk-belief of the Medieval and Early Modern periods, familiar spirits (sometimes referred to simply as “familiars” or ” animal guides”) were believed to be supernatural entities that would assist witches and cunning folk in their practice of magic.

I decided to go with my own version of what I pictured as a magical familiar being.
