Interview with India's 1st and only taxidermist
The Indian Republic
Taxidermy is a word that most of us would not comprehend. It is the art of "stuffing and mounting" the skins of dead animals and birds primarily for display in museums and institutions. You might remember your visits to the local museum as a kid where you would have been fascinated with a "stuffed" lion on display. Little would you have known about the amount of work that goes into preparing that model. It is only after slogging for hours and following certain basic and intricate steps involved in the art and science of taxidermy that a dead animal is re-erected again.

Caution: Rogue taxidermy is in season
St. Paul Pioneer Press
Autumn, Keats informs us, is the "season of mists and mellow fruitfulness." It's also a good time for taxidermy art, according to Robert Marbury. Which, according to Marbury, could include a kitten wearing a saddle, a two-headed chick or a cereal bowl containing the bloody-mouthed head of a raccoon. "The fall is really the point where this art rings truest to me," Marbury said.
