Taxidermy IS Art Stamp by Lupen202 Taxidermy IS Art Stamp by Lupen202
Lol, was bored and wanted to try my hand at a stamp. Might update it later with a better version with better pictures, but you can use it if you want.


If you don't like taxidermy, I don't care really. Don't post rude comments.

EDIT: Sense people don't seem to understand what I mean by "Don't post rude comments"... I mean don't act like a little immature brat with anger issues. You can express how much you dislike, or even hate something without throwing a fit or using all caps. I know there are a lot of people who disapprove of this art form, and I'm not going to ask people not to express their opinion, I'm just asking people to express their opinion like a mature human being. It is possible, though it doesn't seem that way after reading some comments made by the various wolfaboos, etc. on this site.



EDIT AGAIN: If you like this version feel free to still fave/use it, but I've made a newer version.

There are many different mediums that go into taxidermy. You need sewing skills to hide your seams, painting skills to recreate the nose/ears/eyes/beaks, sculpting skills to get the anatomy right, carving skills if you are making your own forms...There is a lot of art that goes into taxidermy, but most people just see that it is a dead animal that's been mounted and dismiss it as quickly.

If you look into the process, you'll find it's a lot more difficult than just putting a hide on a form, and that it is, indeed, an art form all in its own right. C:

So...? If it's illegal in many countries, it shouldn't be art.

Where is it illegal? I know certain animals are illegal to have/ship due to conservation or other statuses...but I've NEVER heard it's illegal in a country as a whole.

And no matter what you personally think, it will always be an art.

Bringing life back into a dead animal is art to me.  (Well not bringing a dead animal back to life litteraly but like, restoring it's beauty again after death)

Well. It's your opinion. After all, art is in the eye of the beholder. I am a taxidermy collector and I think it is art, but I respect your opinion.

Since when were you the one who decided what is or isn't art?
