Description: Fremantle Heritage Festival Artist Showcase Beasts of Battle:
Animals in WWI
Karen Jackson of 'Wolf Takes Fox' Studio and Wild Twig Studios
For Australians, the ANZAC legend, Duffy - Simpson's donkey - is probably
the most famous of the many horses, mules and donkeys used for transporting
supplies and wounded men. Of course, there were many other types of animals
and birds used during that conflict.
Inspired by the centenary of the Anzac landing, this art will acknowledge
some of the roles played by the different animals during WW1.
With both words and pictures, this project will look at how both sides
'depended on the efforts and skills of animals for transport, logistics,
communications and, at times, solace.'*
