An editor where I used to work rescued this paper and wire “taxidermy” from the side of the road in Tribeca. He’s perfect for my room, which has a lot of traditional furniture with more modern, playful fabrics and accessories. I like his big scale (at 36″ high, 22″ deep) and how he brings the eye up, drawing attention to my high ceiling. I’ve resisted any temptation to paint him to cover the bandage on the snout because I love the ethereal quality brought by afternoon light shining through the paper. And I love him more for his imperfections!
PS. Nice paint color!
