24 Apr

Wow the work of artist Maurizio Cattelan is so macabre – I absolutely adore it. Her portfolio is a dream mix of taxidermy, sculpture and photography.

WOW… amazing creations from EatonNott (sorry am so excited by them had to post three stories in a row).

This highly unusual hat is made out of the skin from a horses head that died of natural causes. Trimmed off with hair from its tail, it's a really exceptional and unique piece.This highly unusual hat is made out of the skin from a horses head that died of natural causes.

There is nothing bad I can say about the work of Shauna Richardson I just ADORE her work; especially Crochetdermy as I love the concept but hate the idea of using real animals no matter how humane their death is said to be as you never know!

How To Shrink A Head

15 Dec

Utterly random brilliance over at Nerdcore – ever wanted to know how human heads are shrunk then read on >>

 

THERE’S A REASON hunters’ trophies tend to end at the neck. A head is more practical than a body. It’s easier to transport, it’s less time-consuming to prepare, and it confers the same bragging rights. Today, I count 29 heads—most taxidermied, some ­shrunken—on display in the Adventurers Club’s spacious old headquarters in downtown ­Chicago. Plus four attached to torsos: mine, David Brown’s, club honcho Howard Rosen’s, and that of Struve’s shrunken boy.
