Karley Feaver took taxidermy to a strange and exciting place for her series 'Becoming Otherwise.' The artist took taxidermied birds and gave them makeovers in the form of new hairdos, accessories and more. The result is a series of eye-catching birds that exist not in nature but in an art gallery.

In addition to crazy hairstyles and accessories, the birds of 'Becoming Otherwise' were also painted. Paint was applied to everything from wings to legs, giving once-mundane birds a splash of bright color. According to Feaver, all of the birds were ethically sourced, so you don’t need to worry about birds being killed in the name of art.
