Photographer Amy Stein has an ability to create unique dioramas using taxidermied animals. Her pictures demonstrate the interaction between man and animal, highlighting the submissiveness and dominance of their separate instincts. 

It is interesting to see both how the animal and man are never shown as 'wild' but merely inquisitive and wary of one another.

Implications - You may be surprised to find that these images portray a deeper connection between humans and animals than typically meets the eye. Alternatively, you may find yourself relating the scenes and situations of the photographs. Either way, the photographs are entertaining in that they accurately depict the awkward relations between animals and humans. Have a gander at the taxidermied wolves outside country homes or bears outside swimming pools in the galleries.
