Handmade Knitted Taxidermy
Jessica Dance Created These Beautiful Wool Animal Heads

Jessica Dance is a creative art director based out of London who handcrafted these clever wool animal heads which add a quirky, playful element to interior walls. As a kind alternative to mounting hunted animals, Jessica uses her domestic knitting machine, felt and 100% lambs wool to bring each life-size beast to existence. This series of humane taxidermy, appropriately titled ‘The Knit-Heads,’ includes beautiful recreations of a highland bull, a sheep, a deer, a stag and a boar.

What strikes me most about each of these fantastic mounted creatures is the sheer size and structure (especially in the neck.) With measurements ranging from 50cm - 80cm these wool animal heads take about three days to complete. I absolutely love this idea. The kind facial expressions and soft tusks are remarkably calming details which bring texture, depth and conversation to any room.
