Caption: A still life of objects associated with the early naturalist and conservationist Charles Waterton. Including his best selling book, 'Wanderings in South America'. The satirical hoax taxidermy nondescript front plate and a colour plate from the book of him riding a Caiman in south America, A letter from his home at Walton Hall, (one of the worlds first nature preserves - where he talks about his nesting herons). And also poison arrow dart (relevant because he discovered the native indian use of curare and brought it as an aneasthetic to Europe).
