Well, why don’t you get animalistic?

Taxidermy has been a popular art form the last few years.  Several artists have completed amazing works using this morbid medium.  I enjoy seeing the works in museums, but I struggle a bit with having a real dead animal in my home.  Luckily, other artists have created fabric or papier-mache animal pieces that I’m comfortable with.  I love the whimsical and enchanting feel…especially during this time of the year.
