Traditional forms of taxidermy can be very limiting in terms of creative manipulation, as there is only so much you can do to alter a dead animal. However, in the Wood Splitter Lee Animal Sculptures collection the possibilities are endless.
This deviantART artist creates her own animal sculptures without the use of any dead carcasses. The basis of each animal's shape is made out of materials such as wood, clay and chicken wire, and is then wrapped up in a soft padding. On top of that, she adds imitation fur that she hand dyes and as many details and decorative elements as she sees fit. The result are truly one-of-a-kind fantasy creatures.
The Wood Splitter Lee Animal Sculptures can also be posed in various stances.
