These are just a few the chimeric taxidermy sculptures by Enrique Gomez De Molina, an Floridian artist.
Whether they’re fantastic or nightmarish they exist to raise awareness about animal conservation, by taking “ordinary” animal parts and creating something unique, and in a way, extinct.
Unfortunately not all his materials are common or conventional as ironically, the man has been charged with trafficking in endangered and threatened species parts for his works.
While he maintains that no animals were killed specifically for these sculptures it remains a federal crime to buy into the trade of any endangered species materials, even for artistic purposes.
