In general taxidermy freaks me out.
So much so, I can’t even touch/look at the objects in our collection that fall under this category. Thankfully, I don’t work at a natural history museum, we only have a few pieces ourselves, and I’m working at making eye contact with the birds at our other house museum, but I’m not terribly upset I only have to see them once a week.
This morning I stumbled upon this link on Boing Boing titled “Rogue Taxidermy“. Intrigued at the ‘rogue’ part I read on and I kind of find these sculptures somewhat endearing. Still wouldn’t want one, and don’t really understand it. Yet now it’s more amusing.
What do you think? More here.
