EDITORIAL

           Armelle Fémelat, whose dissertation on Italian equestrian portraiture from the thirteenth to fifteenth centuries is forthcoming, brings us into the world of representations of animals shown dead or alive, wherein things have lives of their own. She invites us to grasp, through the world of forms, the nature of animal otherness by crossing the boundaries of time and space.
