Crochetdermy by Shauna Richardson

I saw this on Regretsy and had to re-post. Conceptual artist, Shauna Richardson, makes life-sized sculptures out of Crochet reminiscent of the lost art of taxidermy. Kinda creepy, kinda cool, and it’s all Crochet!

For two years Shauna has been creating the largest single-handed crochet sculpture in the world for a project called Lionheart Project. The finished piece will be housed in a mobile glass taxidermy style case and tour throughout 2012. lionheartproject.com

  1. I loved your animals–so cool!!! But, I just had to tell you the taxidermy is not a lost art. My husband is a taxidermist and the art is thriving and has moved into this century. New techniques, very talented artists–google a taxidermy association website and see examples. I think you will be amazed also.
