The imagination of ancient peoples was largely populated by animals – close as a mother and father and, at the same time, as mysterious as fire, ocean and lightning. They taught people compassion, courage and justice, and also respect for every living being. Under the impermeable cloak of myth and fairy tale, they bridged the heavens and the earth and passed on the truth about the shared fate of all beings, about the changing of the seasons, as well as about joy and pain, life and death.
