thank you for making me laugh out loud!
After shuddering at the legacy of these poor animals, I laughed too! I have to admit though, that red fox table is really creative, even if I can't get over the fact that the legs and body were essentially tossed out--what a waste.
Hilarious, the first fox being my favorite.
Had you not captioned the first one, I would have been at a total loss.
The bench fox may be a roadkill creation by an art student. A lot of fox killed on the road have fine tails and heads, but are wrecked im the middle by vehicle impact. The lion taxidermy at top was a skin shipped from Africa at a time when most people had no idea what a lion looked like. With just a skin, and no mold or pictures, you can put up an animal that bears very little resemblance to what is found in nature.
I feel a little guilty that I love that fox table.
Notice the 'bloomers' on the rear legs of the bench fox. I think that's the funniest part!
I read this post the same day that I finished "Beatrice and Virgil", by Yann Martel. Which is pretty random, but. How often in the same day do you read so much about taxidermy?
