Abstract

Penned up in a glass case at Huntly House Museum, Edinburgh, are the life-like and life-size cast lead figures of a swan, a fox, a hare and a lapwing (Figure 3-1). Necessarily divorced from their original context they have been little discussed. This paper explores the possibility that in their survival we have evidence of a baroque grotto of which the major constituent parts – animals and building – are still with us.
