Dad’s Taxidermy

June 27th, 2011  |  Published in inspirations  |  2 Comments

My childhood coastal home remains how it was when I was growing up. the original wallpapers, including the one I would stare at, crossing my eyes so it became miniature and advanced toward my eye. The tapestries made by my paternal nana in Hungary. Dad’s taxidermy processing sheds, his display and the garden he built where he now spends most of his days. My foundation for creative practice, my dad is my inspiration.

    Jervis Bay where he lives is still very rich and pristine supporting a wonderful biodiversity. This particular owl was found electrocuted hanging from power lines near our house in Vincentia I think during the 1990s. It had the ringtail possum (dead) in its clutches.
