I am a firm lover of taxidermy. There's something incredibly hostile about it that really attracts me, as a result I have decided to rework this post slightly.

Hence the prior minimal amount of text,,,,,,
I am still in love with these. If these were wearable and available to buy, it would make me very happy.

'The German government once tried to put the artist in jail for her taxidermy art but, as she explains, her work gives life and reanimation to the creatures she uses.'
