    That is original and clever but, as for any taxidermist work, I must say I do find it a tad creepy.

    I think these works, like all of Polly Morgans stuff I’ve seen – are quite beautiful and evoke a sense of stillness. I love these pieces and think the way they are displayed really makes them.

    A piece in Conde` Nast intrigued me to Google everything I could find on your work. Truly beautiful. Truly beautiful. You have a gift.
