Taxidermy Sheep Cabinet

1

Spanish design company BD Barcelona Design has created a taxidermy sheep cabinet, the latest in its range of Salvador Dalí-inspired furniture.

21 lambs were selected from a Parisian slaughterhouse and sent to taxidermist Maison Deyrolle, whom Dalí regularly patronized during his lifetime. A limited edition set comprising 20 white pieces and one special black piece was created, with the white lambs priced at €36,500 and the black one at €72,000.

They are part of the Dalí Furniture Collection which was started in 1972 by Blanca, a close friend of the late artist.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
