Watercolour illustration of a Alpaca by Daniel Mackie. Printed on High quality 330gsm card. Cards are 7x5 inches. Why are things that are so deadly so beautiful? This is one of the questions at the heart of William Blakes famous poem, ‘The Tyger’, published in 1794. Blake explores the duality between aesthetic beauty and primal ferocity. Blake’s philosophy is kind of summarised in a question, Did he that make the lamb also make the tiger? The struggle of humanity is based on the concept of the contrary nature of things. Truth, his poetry suggests, lays in comprehending the contradictions between innocence and experience. Cards are blank inside so can be used for any purpose
