Taxidermy has been something that has fascinated me since childhood, and when I stumbled across anthropomorphic taxidermy I felt an almost overwhelming urge to study the field, and put my dark mind to work. Anthropomorphic taxidermy is what inspired artist and sculptor Thomas Grünfeld to bring two animals together to make an entirely new specimen. My desire to learn the skills of taxidermy hasn’t faded…I have to say Grünfeld’s work has intensified it.
