one of the founding fathers of english taxidermy, walter potter uses his taxidermy skills in a wholly whimsical & slightly disturbing manner. each tableau looks like a a macabre scene from a child's storybook. his attention to detail is simply amazing. i wonder what type of man spends his free time gently crafting carcases into a anthropomorphic fairytale? i would love to sit down for a cup of tea with him. another thing that impressed me was the fact that he never killed an animal with the sole intent of using it for his taxidermy.
