Polly Morgan bringing a modern twist to taxidermy and natural history displays (More here)
It's holiday time which means family days out. Good Friday we went to the Horniman museum and Gardens at Forest Hill. A good natural history collection and some cultural stuff too, collected by old great and good Frederick Horniman, who built a public museum to show off his bling and try and educate the public too (nobody's still quite cracked that one!).
Artist Polly Morgan had a display using stuffed animals- the kind of stuff that if your mate was showing you that he'd made in his bedroom and wasn't for an art house or museum- you'd fear for your safety. Needless to say, right up my street- loved it.
Looks like the Tickell's Thrush in the collection is wrongly labelled (looks like a Black-throated to me).
A must see on the London natural history circuit.
