Melting Taxidermy Art
Nicholas Galanin's Inert Wolf Symbolizes Stunted Progress

The Inert Wolf sculpture may look like it is in the process of melting in the floor, but it is in fact made out of two separate pieces of pre-taxidermist wolves. One of the pieces has clearly been skinned while the other part has remained whole, at least up until its torso. By stitching them together, the Inert Wolf sculpture becomes something shocking in and of itself.

Created by artist Nicholas Galanin, Inert Wolf is a comment on cultural practices. It is as though the wolf is trying to escape its inevitable end. Galanin says, “The inability to progress or move forward was the basic concept.” By generating an intense emotional response, Inert Wolf has made viewers cry.
