Zoo Portrait : Marco, the domestic goat kid
About Marco, the domestic goat kid:
The domestic goat is a subspecies that comes from the wild goats of Southern Asia and Eastern Europe. It is believed to be the first animal to be domesticated by humans, more than 10,000 years ago. Goats are ruminants, which means that they have four stomachs or, more precisely, four different compartments in their digestive system where the processes of rumination and digestion take place.
They have an excellent memory. Research has shown that they can solve complex tasks and remember how to complete them after 10 months.
About Yago, the artist:
Yago Partal (b. 1982, Barcelona) lives and works in Barcelona.
He creates his anthropomorphic images through a painstaking combination of photography, illustration and collage. His intention (in humanising animals) is to make us look again, to see them as "one of us" and not something to be exploited or endangered.
Yago has returned to university to study his passion, zoology. The sales from the Zoo Portraits have enabled him to support a number of wildlife charities over the years, and to work with children to educate the next generation about animal conservation.
Yago Partal is represented by Subject Matter Art, an online fine art gallery based in London. For any questions about his work, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
