Discover the fine line between Desire and Danger at this stimulating new exhibition at the Goh Seng Choo Gallery. Featuring creatures that arouse appetites and instil fear, and exotic plants sought for their ability to induce pleasure or pain, this selection of drawings from the William Farquhar Collection of Natural History Drawings explores the complex and sometimes uneasy relationship between man and nature.

Find out more about the William Farquhar Collection of Natural History Drawings through Story of the Forest ​or explore the flora and fauna of 20th-century Malaya with a specially designed Young Explorer’s Trail booklet here (recommended for 5-12 year olds).
