Description

BOOK DESCRIPTION
The bronze bull from Weltenburg and the owls on wheel linchpins from Manching are among the best known animal depictions among Bavaria's rich assemblage of Bronze and Iron Age metalwork. In addition to the aesthetic beauty of such pieces, they are particularly useful for identifying the ideologies and beliefs of the people who made them. Wagner examines the historical context, production techniques and symbolism of these Bavarian objects, using comparisons with contemporary fauna for reference. Wagner also considers emotional and practical relationships between humans and animals and how representations of these relationships in objects and art identify cultures. Concludes with an illustrated catalogue of over 200 items.
