This bizarre new exhibit by artist Maurizio Cattelan is centered around horses stuck in unusual poses. Animal rights activists can relax, there were no living horses harmed in the making of this art installation, however it does involve taxidermy.

This strange exhibit features multiple horses who seem to have their heads stuck in dry wall. When I think of horses, I don't typically think home decor, but even so, this peculiar art installation is quirky and eye-catching.

Horses are majestic animals, but somehow they seem less graceful dangling from a wall. This series is an undated version of a similar project that Maurizio Cattelan did in 2007, and this project definitely makes an impression on viewers.

Taxidermy is an odd form of art but Cattelan's horse focused exhibit is a lot of fun to look at.
