The most famous of "Peaceable Kingdom "paintings were by American folk painter Edward Hicks ( 1780 -1849) a distinguished minister of the Society of Friends, who became a Quaker icon because of his paintings. Hicks depicted humans and animals to represent the idea of breaking down differences between individuals to working and living together in peace
Extract from ESKIMO SONG
". In the very earliest time,
when both people and animals lived on earth,
a person could become an animal if he wanted to
and an animal could become a human being.
Sometimes they were people
and sometimes animals
and there was no difference.
All spoke the same language"
