Australian artist Patricia Piccinini has reimagined the sentimental theme of "Children and Beasts" in the context of Steven Spielberg's "The Extra-Terrestrial". What is it like if a children's pet is not a cat-dog or even a newt, but someone completely strange and unearthly? The heroes of the artist's hyperrealistic compositions are children with pets. Children are ordinary. Pets are both gentle and subtly disgusting to the point of being dumbfounded. By the way, they can often be seen on Internet userpics.

A girl with a kitten, a boy with a puppy, a girl with a bird, a boy with a hedgehog, and so on and so forth. The theme "Cute babies and cute animals" is a bottomless fount for professional tenderness manufacturers. Millions of postcards, figurines and pictures are dedicated to pure childhood love for other species. But what if this biological species is not just different, but “very, completely different”? Spielberg convinced mankind that a child's soul, not hardened by stereotypes, is capable of loving anyone, if this someone has at least a minimal particle of pathos. Australian artist Patricia Piccinini has explored this theme to terrifying depths.

As a consolation to the nervous and pregnant, we’ll say right away that all the children involved in the compositions are mannequins. However, they are not at all like their brothers from the Children's World: they extremely realistically “play” a silent play for the glory of the total children's love for the living. No matter how alive it looks...

5. Which of the cat owners did not sleep in an embrace with their own cat? And for someone, a creature that reproduces by budding is no less dear. Yes, the beast, tenderly hugging a sleeping child, does not stop multiplying even in a dream.
