We’ve featured plenty of artistic taxidermy pieces here before, but none of them are nearly as pretty as artist Cedric Laquieze’s gorgeous floral taxidermy works.
These awesome and vividly colored animal specimens aren’t Photoshopped, they’re actually stripped of their flesh and then dyed in crazy colors.
I’m fascinated by artistic taxidermy and the works done by Jessica Joslin are some of the coolest I’ve seen in a very long time.
If you forgot to get the person you’re stalking a Valentine’s present, it’s never too late to get him or her some deliciously freaky taxidermy jewelry.
Esther Verschoor is one of many talented artists working in the underrated field of taxidermy art. Her specialty? Creating disturbingly detailed human women from the carcasses of dead birds and rodents. Be sure to check out the rest of the gallery for more extraordinary art pieces.
Own original taxidermy by Dr. Suess…if you have an extra $1 million lying around.
Crappy taxidermy is a great new blog with some exceptionally disturbing, funny and crappy taxidermy works of art. Personally, I love the one above, but the whole site is fantabulous.
Speaking of weird taxidermy, The Gopher Hole Museum in Alberta, Canada features cute, dressed up taxidermied gophers. There are over 47 dioramas. Interestingly, PETA, the #1 group you love to hate, is responsible for really pushing the publicity of this great tourist destination through their excessive whinning and bitching. Gee PETA, maybe it would help if you renamed gophers like you tried to do with “sea kittens.”
