D. Haraway : »A diorama is a eminently a story, a part of natural history. The story is told in the pages of nature, read by the naked eye. The animals is the habitat groups are captured in a photograpger’ s and sculptor’ s vision. They are actors in a morality play on the stage of nature, and the eye is the critical organ.«
