Morbid Anatomy Museum hosts taxidermy exhibition in NYC


New York’s Morbid Anatomy Museum hosts the taxidermy exhibition whose main attraction is the Kittens’ Wedding. The art piece by Walter Potter features about 20 kittens at a wedding ceremony. Perhaps the most memorable of all of the works of Potter, the Kittens’ Wedding was completed in the 1890s. There are many other such artworks displayed at the exhibition. The tradition of preserving dead animals goes back to the Ancient Egyptians. They mummified crocodiles, cats and other animals. However, preservation through taxidermy is a much more recent phenomenon that became popular in England during the Victorian era.
