So if you’re anything like me, that picture on the left has you saying “what the (insert favorite expletive) is that ?!?!?!” Although some would say the real answer may be debatable, I can tell you what it psychically is. A 100% real life mummified bird that has been mounted on canvas inside an antiqued Oak frame.
If it still doesn’t seem quite right to your eye thats because the artist Raven cleverly and I’m sure with great difficulty has positioned the remains to resemble a flying insect. Looks like a good reason to buy a mosquito net if their ever was one. Check out the close-up HERE.
If this got you excited then you should go check out the artists shop Dreadful Things by Raven, there you can find more morbid creations ranging from taxidermy bats displayed in antique Victorian cages, to jewelry dawning bird skulls. If the REAL dead stuff isn’t really your thing you might still find some great paintings, prints, & cards from the same mind that created these terrorific one of a kind works of art.
If the dead stuff upsets you, bummer I guess, but before you go writing complaints to me or the artist note that the bird skeletons & skulls used are from found dead animals so let it go. Stick to throwing paint on fur coats and let outsider artists pick up the dead things left by the neighborhood cats. I could only hope that my remains could become a piece of jewelry or art instead of dirt when I die; dirt isn’t original at all!
