Arminas Stanulevicius' Taxidermy Hunting Trophies are Gruesome

Lithuanian artist Arminas Stanulevicius' work creatively combines hunting taxidermy and morbid social commentary in his hunting trophy artwork series. These bizarre animal mounts explicitly give off a rather eerie vibe through the combination of human bones and decaying materials.

Stanulevicius' art pieces seem to render iconic Disney film characters into decaying wall mounts. One of Stanulevicius' pieces features a disjointed decaying skull with two melting red candles stuck to the head. The skull is mounted to a wooden wall mount made out of stapled mousetraps stuck together in the shape of the famous Disney mascot, Mickey Mouse. The second piece features a similar skull with two antlers reminiscent of Disney's Bambi. The use of human skulls and Disney references to create taxidermy animals is remarkably spooky.
