holy smokes, Kate MccGwire...




And there's more where that came from. What an insane amount of detail and time and precision. The pigeon feathers come from pigeon wranglers around the UK (hence the stamped markings on the wings). I can't even imagine encountering that curious, beautiful beast in that enormous museum cabinet. The piece is called "Vex".

And then she went and made this one,
called "Rile".

Oh this gave me a fright...I thought it was so freaky giant boa constrictor or something (am completely phobic about snakes and can't look at pictures of them!)

Gosh, it's beautiful!!
