Polly Morgan is a taxidermist who creates thought-provoking works of art. Constantly depicting the triumph of life over death, her images might seem morbid at first, but people will be able to connect with them on a deeper level once they look past the initially disturbing details. Polly Morgan arranges the animals in reverent ways in order to create these deeper connections.

Based in East London, England, Polly Morgan may focus on birds, but she also works with deer, pigs and more. Beautiful Decay writes, "Not interested in being a "classic" taxidermist, she wants to make her work more pop and modern. She has succeeded in creating a world of her own where a tiny bird sits delicately on a toothbrush or a nest of hungry baby birds are screaming from a deer’s stomach."
