What do you get if you cross a squirrel and a crab?
A convicted exotic taxidermist.
On my first expedition into a bloggers snakepit I tumbled across this vulgarity! (I love vulgarity). Some may call it a form of invention, imagination even intrigue. Others revolting. Either way the rubber necker in me clicked the link.
Miami based ‘dead animal artist’ hit the nail on the head in the way of taxidermy, and on the coffin of his career. 5 years in jail for illegal possession of exotic animals.
In the name of art he proclaimed to ‘raise awareness with his work to the danger faced by a range of species’. That old corker.
Is it ethically sound? I don’t know the man or his methods…whatever floats your boat I guess. I recently got winklepicked by an artist who asked me once if my dog had died, would I like it to be made into a jacket, an all-in-one puppy playsuit perhaps?
No. I really would not…
Vulgarity has a limit, perhaps it unearthed conscience.
On that note… Have a lovely evening! Harriet xxx
