Collection: The Hunter | Collection# HNT-23-905A

Hunting first appeared three million years ago and has remained with us ever since, alongside other food-producing activities such as farming livestock. In the Middle Ages, hunting was the privilege of the nobility, linked with the right to land ownership. After the French Revolution, it was democratised extensively, which lead to considerable damage to the forest ecosystem. It has since become mainly a leisure activity and is now governed by strict laws to protect wildlife and its environment.
