Imagine seeing an elephant, two owls, a scorpion and even an endangered white buffalo in Wisbech.

Sadly, they are not the real thing, but works of art by students at the Isle campus of the College of West Anglia, and have been on show at the Boathouse Business Centre, in Nene Parade.

Many of the students used drinks cans, car parts and other recycled items for the models.

The show, which features around 20 exhibits, is called Animalia and starts today (Friday). You can see it until Thursday.

Animals are the theme for a range of work produced by L3 Art & Design students, many of whom have taken a term or more to complete their exhibits.

The works are inspired by animals and stories, including the Jungle Book, and are based around animals and include large-scale sculpture, drawing, print and painting.

The students’ final end of year show will be on June 23, taking up exhibition space inside and outside the Isle campus.
