Taxidermy birds with hairdos

I’m not sure how I feel about this, but it certainly deserves a second look. ‘Using mixed materials like plumage, hair, gold, and paint’, New Zealand artist Karley Fever creates ‘exotic creatures and nests with a strangely familiar and surreal aesthetic’. Surreal is right! Some of these birds have extraordinary hairdos such as ponytails, dreadlocks and braids.

‘I am interested in the scientific, intellectual and aesthetic reasons behind the re-creation of the animal’, Fever says. ‘I am exploring how each one could exist in a domestic setting by adapting to their surroundings’.
