Amazing upholstered animals mimic realistic taxidermy

Through her work, artist Kelly Jelinek has created a solution for the art of taxidermy that may not sit well with others.

“As a child growing up in rural Wisconsin, I was thoroughly accustomed to seeing taxidermy deer and game mounts — I thought of them as standard items of household decor. Even when I was a small child they never scared or disgusted me — if anything, they fascinated me. That fascination stayed with me into adulthood, and has inspired the artwork that I make today.”

Jelinek’s pieces are fabric upholstery and greatly mimic what a normal piece of taxidermy would look like. For more of her work, check out her website or her Etsy page.
