Pavillon de la Faune houses one of the greatest private collection of naturalized wild animals, the result of the numerous hunting expeditions made by Jean-Luc Couture, the owner.
Why have we chosen to exhibit the animals in this particular fashion?
We wanted to stress the importance of both the animal and the habitat that sustains its life. The dioramas give us an accurate reproduction of the habitat as shown in the photographs taken during the hunting expeditions of Jean-Luc Couture.
On one hand, the contrast between the relative darkness of the corridors and, on the other hand, the brightness of the scenes do accentuate the illusion of reality.
Visitors can let themselves travel through a decor that is nothing but magical. Furthermore, some dioramas contain elements in relief which, when superimposed on the horizon, do accentuate the tridimensional effect.
