House of Beasts

Attingham is hosting another exhibition of contemporary art named House of Beasts. It comprises of around 40 separate works, many inside the mansion but several outside in the park and Walled Garden. Each piece relates in some way to the animals found on the estate, wild and domesticated, past and present. Many of the pieces are made up of bone, feathers or actual animals but none were harmed in the making of the artworks. It's an interesting collection that should spark off some good debates so come and have a look - here are some pictures of some of the pieces that can be found outside around the Park:
