The latest work of American artist Kiki Smith (b. 1954) has received wide acclaim. Having concentrated on the human body, Smith now focuses on creatures that take part in our existence. The inspiration for this new work was a mysterious dream the artist had, and she brings to the art a clarity of purpose that deliberately contrasts the beauty in nature with our uneasy relationship to it. Looking through her new work is akin to walking through a fairy tale full of beauty, gracefulness, yet also one of fear. She finds sources in past cultures and mythology, and re-discovers old forms and materials -- working them into a contemporary context. Smith works with drawing, sculpture, photography, video, paper, ceramics, glass, and other media. We encounter pictures and conceptions from Christian iconography, and from Egyptian, Celtic or Indian mythology, Published on the occasion of Kiki Smith's exhibition at the Kestner Gesellschaft in Hannover, Germany this volume is a real treat for all connoisseurs of contemporary art.

All Creatures Great and Small is a collection of nine charming allegories set within the Creator’s forest. As each story unfolds, the happenings and mishaps of its furry and feathered characters illustrate each of the nine beatitudes of Jesus. All Creatures Great and Small seeks to paint a beautiful picture of all that believers might hope to be through following the teachings of Christ. Linda Read has a precious heart after the Lord. Her book on the beatitudes illustrates Jesus’s core sermon with lovable characters in a way that children will understand. I pray that many parents will read this to their little ones and teach their children about God’s heart and His Kingdom from a very young age. In Mozambique, we have discipleship with the children each week and read stories about God’s love, power, and glory. Our children will be the world changers, walking in the legacy we pour into them and in even greater things than we have seen. We look forward to reading this story with our treasures and we hope that you will enjoy it as well. Heidi G. Baker, PhD Co-Founder and Director of Iris Global What an honor and joy it has been to read Linda’s first children’s book! In the stories I could see the heart of God portrayed so beautifully through the lives of the animals. My prayer is that all the children, teens and adults who read Linda’s book will have their eyes opened to the loving God who desires to have a relationship with us, just as He did with the animals in the stories. So, grab a tall glass of iced tea and enjoy a new perspective on the beatitudes. Carol Boening - Life-long friend and Director of AWANA, First Baptist Church, Yoakum, Texas As these animals live daily life in the forest, they teach lessons that both children and adults often face. These delightfully quirky animals handle many different scenarios in a Biblical and valuable way. This book is written in such a way that it will appeal to both children and adults. As Leah the eagle finds love, and Benjamin Beaver discovers the value of his spiritual presence in others’ lives, children learn how to handle difficult emotions, and discover their Christ-centered identity, and adults are reminded where true identity comes from. In reading this book to their children, parents will open up a world of possibility and discovery. It will also allow room for conversation and growth of relationship.
