Weird Taxidermy from Victorian Times

Rabbits’ Village School, Circa 1888

Huhh, this is creepy as hell. These images come from Walter Potter (1835-1918) who was an amateur taxidermist and built tableaux that became icons of Victorian whimsy. A new book by historian of taxidermy Dr Pat Morris and New York-based artist and curator Joanna Ebenstein seeks to celebrate the now-dispersed collection with new photos of his best-loved works.
