Through classification humans attempt to make order from nature:
Animal - Mammal - Carnivora - Canidae (Dog Like Mammals) - Canini (related to wolves).
Dogs: Terriers, Hounds, Working, Toy, Sporting, Utility, Pastoral .
Terriers: Jack Russell, Yorkshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, West Highland… the list goes on!
A common application of alliteration is in books intended for children learning about letters, or for characters in a story book. In this series of oil paintings it is applied to the titles of the paintings (dog breed and background colour), adding a sense of poetry to the exhibition.
