I know this is a bit old but..



For one, it isn't "stuffing and painting skins". It takes a lot more than just sticking a form inside of an animal. You've got to know how to sew fairly well, you need to use clay to resculpt muscles and add detail to eyes, you have to mix paints to get a realistic color to paint around the eyes and nose, or use an airbrush. It's not easy to make an animal look alive again... There's also the bases involved in the mounts, which can sometimes be absolutely stunning.



And why leave the animal in the ground so it gets eaten by maggots or torn beyond recognition by some other animal? Why not preserve it for generations to see? It isn't disrespecting the animal, it's the opposite, and most animals aren't even killed for the purpose of taxidermy. Most skins used are byproducts of population control, or in the case of deer for example, left overs from a meal.

I completely agree with you. Don't know why people try to pass it off as art when really all it is is a weirdo stuffing and painting skins of animal who should've been left to rest in peace.

taxidermy isn't about putting an animal head on your wall, retard. Next time, before you make an assumption, actually know if what your'e assuming is correct. Seriously, it amazes me how highly ignorant people are of what they don't understand, or what deviates from the "norm."

well , in my opinion it is sad that some people did not give more importance and respect o animal life... they deserve to live also... a preservation of animal life....
