A painting that gave Europe its first ever glimpse of the kangaroo is the centre piece of a new natural history exhibition.
'The Kongouro From New Holland' was painted by George Stubbs in 1772 after Captain Cook's first voyage.
The oil painting is on display at the Grant Museum of Zoology as part of 'Strange Creatures: The Art of Unknown Animals'.
The exhibition explores how imagery has been used to depict newly discovered species across the centuries.
In the case of Stubbs' kangaroo, the artist created his now famous depiction of the marsupial after seeing a skull and a basic sketch drawing of the creature.
Other examples on display include a 16th century copy of Albrecht Durer's 'rhinoceros' image which was subsequently copied by a number of artists despite its inaccurate depiction of the mammal.
