Studio Gnu’s premiere series eschews taxidermy mounts for unflinchingly lifelike faux animal trophies of Scottish wildlife sculpted out of harris tweed, embroidery detailing and the such. The brains behind the studio is Glasgow-based Chloe Harrison, who uses traditional craft and stitching techniques to make these equally crafty creatures. Very impressive.
