One Duck by Monique Habraken is Beautifully Romantic

The One Duck tapestry is beautiful to behold for more reasons than one. Not only is it a unique piece of artwork that treats rich feathers almost like paint or fabric, it is the immortalization of a possible love story. The artist behind the flighty canvas says, "I found a duck couple, along the road, in spring, they were probably flying after each other and got hit by a car in the heat of the moment."

Created by Monique Habraken, who is based in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, the One Duck tapestry is a big step ahead of taxidermy. Much more abstract, it uses every single feather belonging to the ducks. While people often admire and even glorify a single stunning feather, this artwork shows that every part of a duck is beautiful.
