Skullful Art

Alastair Mackie is yet another London artist to use taxidermy in the most fascinating art. This "painting is actually comprised of Hornets pinned in tight rows (see right).
This orb is made from mouse skulls digested by barn owls.
Any indigestible parts of an owl's prey is regurgitated as a compressed pellet. From these pellets, the skulls are extracted and a sculpture is born.
