Brooklyn Taxidermy

The New York Times is doing a very cool series on New York City's inhabitants called "One in 8 Million". Today's piece is about a gal named Melissa Dixson who studied painting at the Pratt Institute, and after developing multiple sclerosis about four years ago, trained herself in the art of taxidermy. This story is of particular interest to me because vintage taxidermy is huge right now in the antique world. We just did a full wall display at Uncommon Objects using everything from stuffed groundhogs to mountain goats to bobcats to beaver. Dixson's audio interview is quite entertaining. Check it out.
