Rodin’s ‘The Kiss’ and ‘The Thinker’ are now regarded as masterpieces in their own right, but did you know neither of them started out as individual works? They originally formed part of his elaborate composition ‘The Gates of Hell’, depicting a scene from Dante’s ‘Inferno’. The monumental sculpture stands 6m tall and 4m wide, commissioned in 1880 for a new decorative arts museum in Paris. The museum never got built, but Rodin continued to work on this huge sculpture for over 20 years.

Did you know all dogs evolved from wolves as a result of multiple domestication events that took place at least 15,000 years ago? Wolves have the widest natural range of any land mammal other than humans and once occupied most of the Northern Hemisphere. They have evolved with humans over time, both as workmates and companions.
