As a child growing up and going to the zoo you never really imagined death of an animal, unless of course you had a domestic animal of some sort that has passed away. There are many things that are done with animal remains and taxidermy is one form of physical afterlife for animals. The word Taxidermy is Greek, meaning the classification of skins and was adopted by craftsmen and specialists who were able to preserve an animal by first removing the skin and then mounting the pelt onto a wireframe model made from plastic, clay or a similar material that allows for the animal to be posed. Taxidermy was established thousands of years ago by the Egyptians when they buried animals along with mummies, pharols, etc. In the more recent years Taxidermy has establish itself as a form of art in some people’s eyes. During the Queen Victoria era (1837–1901) mounted animals became popular part of interier designing and decor. The gentlemen who is considered the founding father of taxidermy John Hancock an orinthologist, opened an exibit in The Great Exhibition to display all his avid collection of birds. Taxidermy has come a long way in the past years and its not uncommon to see a deer’s head mounted on the wall of someone’s house. This artwork may be considered as animal cruelty to some people. Some animals are killed for this specific reason and in my opinion it is not morally right. Give me your intake on it? is it art?
