    I mostly wonder where on earth people put those things in their houses...

    @ediblestrange Me too.....I strongly dislike taxidermy. But I have to say...the two money boxes are mine....they are really quite cute in normal light...although they would never pass as toys these days.

    Well I mean I don't mind it too much in a museum because it is a way of keepsake and I highly respect the taxidermists because their work is pretty meticulous. But I guess it's a question of time and culture. I mean there have been cultures where they mummified people... Besides nowadays there are other quirky way of holding on to a person (thinking about diamonds: www.cremationsolutions.com/Cremation-Diamonds-Made-From-Ash… ) I mean how creepy would it be to have your mother on a ring?
