A group of artists calling themselves the Minnesota Association of Rogue Taxidermists (M.A.R.T.) were recently featured in an article(1) by Joel Topcik in The New York Times.
According to the article, the group is "dedicated to exploring the artistic possibilities of stuffing and mounting animal remains." The above photo shows M.A.R.T. co-founder Sarina Brewer's "Goth Griffin," which she constructed from a feral farm cat and a crow, both roadkill. For more weird dead animal creations, head over to the M.A.R.T. Image Galleries(2).
