Memorial. A Tribute to Taxidermy

Watch two short films by Ali Graham showing the process of both mammal and bird taxidermy by ethical taxidermist and artist, Jazmine Miles-Long. Please be aware this film contains scenes of animal dissection.

Find out more about Jazmine’s display at the Horniman Museum and Gardens, ‘Memorial. A Tribute to Taxidermy’:

If you are interested in taxidermy, Jazmine has also written a piece on the process of ethical taxidermy in the UK:


The Horniman Museum and Gardens is an inspiring, surprising, family-friendly, free attraction in South London’s Forest Hill. We’ve been open since Victorian times, when Frederick John Horniman first opened his house and extraordinary collection of objects to visitors. Since then, our collection has grown tenfold and includes internationally important collections of anthropology and musical instruments, as well as an acclaimed aquarium and natural history collection.

Unusually for such an important museum, you can see our collection up-close and face-to-face. You can even pick up, try on and play with some of our objects.

    Amazing work and Jazmine made the ferret looking animal look more adorable. I don't understand how anyone could NOT see how artists like her create these amazing recreations of the living are a good thing. Now, people can study and see the animals much easier. At least she isn't a trophy hunter type!

    The complete lack of sound is so much more unnerving that the skinning ever could be.

    Taxidermy is a wonderful thing (if you kill the animal for no cause it’s not good)
