Artist Peter Gronquist takes taxidermy to a whole new level at his exhibition at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles, fitting stuffed buffalo, wildebeest, zebra, rabbits and other creatures with extremely ornate horns featuring replica rifles, machine guns and AK47s human skeletons, flowers and luxury brand logos.
The idea came to Gronquist when he had a taxidermied antelope in his studio. He told Wired.co.uk: “I started wondering what it might be like in a future where animals had evolved to fight back. I call it ‘absurdist futurism.’ The iconic logo-horned animals derive from my dreams about the future of branding, which I like to think will include genetic branding.”
The pieces are on sale for between $3000 and $10,000 but you can have one of those uni-conies for $500.
