Odd things, daily.
Potter (1835-1918) was an English Taxidermist known for his anthropomorphic dioramas. He was also a talented practicer of crypto-taxidermy, the act of sowing multiple animals together to make strange, impossible creatures.
All his works were made from animals that died of natural causes, given to him by local farmers and vets. In fact, as his popularity grew, people from around his neighbourhood would bring him the bodies of dead pets or animals they’d found.
