From We Go To The Gallery, a limited edition artworkby Miriam Elia, who sez:

‘We Go to the Gallery’ is the first in a series of Dung Beetle Learning books designed to make scary subjects approachable for the under 5s. Printed in bold colours and written in a clear and cheerful tone, each book will drag families into the darker recesses of the collective unconscious, for their broader cultural benefit.

For just as the humble dung beetle gathers faeces from the forest floor in which to lay its eggs, the child also lays its ‘eggs of knowledge’ in the turd of its own mind.

All righty then.
