Exhibition Catalogue "From Kalila wa Dimna to La Fontaine : Travelling through Fables", presented at Louvre Abu Dhabi (March - 21 July 2024).

Fables have been passed down through generations and are found in various cultures around the world. They serve as a means of entertainment as well as a way to impart wisdom and values to readers. This timeless literary genre transcends across cultures and centuries, imparting life lessons and values to both adults and children.

The catalogue traces the fascinating evolution of these fables. They originated in India and Greece, then evolved through influential figures such as Ibn al-Muqaffa' and Aesop, reaching their pinnacle with French fabulist Jean de La Fontaine in the 17th century.

The exhibition draws inspiration from traditional illustrated fables and delves into the mystical world of animal tales embedded within historical manuscripts. With more than 132 artworks on display, the exhibition features an eclectic collection of rare manuscripts, paintings, contemporary works, and more — unveiling the timeless narratives of friendship, loyalty, cunning, and morality, as portrayed through anthropomorphic animal characters.
