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’: http://horniman.ac.uk/visit/exhibitions/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: http://www.horniman.ac.uk/get_involved/blog/life-after-death-about-ethical-taxidermy
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.
