Maarten Kolk & Guus Kusters have created Avifauna, a collection of odd and beautiful taxidermied animals. A Grey Heron, Tawny Owl and Blackbird were stuffed without their plumage then wrapped in fabric and mounted on an oak base.
From the designers:'Avifauna' is about bringing two common worlds we love together, nature and textile. We've started to materialize the beauty, shape and language of form that we see in animals and what's better to start this search than to mold on the animal itself. The 'Dutch' Grey Heron, Tawny owl and Blackbird were stuffed without their plumage and used as dummies to design on.
