This Must Be Designed By Idiots
is an online art exhibit of three Amsterdam-based mixed media artists, where one of the media is taxidermy, and the other is some disturbing combination of fashion design, jewelry, glassblowing & handicrafts. The end result is compellingly creepy
, and my personal favorite is this piece
, a mouse permanently at rest inside the glass belly of a glass cat.
Of all the humorous stuffed rodents
in the "novelties" section of customcreaturetaxidermy.com
, I can't decide whether my favorite is the squirrel full o'whiskey
(with the removable head for decanting) or the "mouse trap gag
" (see, the gag is, it looks
like a disgusting dead mouse in a trap, when in reality... oh, wait...).
