Ravishing Beasts: The strangely alluring world of taxidermy
Oh yes! We have another giveaway for you lovely readers!
Displaying the Museum of Vancouver’s extensive collection of taxidermy for the first time in decades, Ravishing Beasts investigates the provocative and strangely alluring world of taxidermy.
Whether a hoarding of exotic curiosities, a scientific archive, a hunting trophy, or a stuffed pet, taxidermy always exposes longings to capture animals and tell stories about their significance within human lives.
Over a hundred animals will be on display from the Museum’s own collection and was acquired primarily between 1894 and 1950 from Vancouver residents.
.... and ....
