one man's pest is another man's pet

Sculptor Emily Valentine Bullock doesn't believe in waste. Shes uses the feathers of birds killed by cars, cats, and other people's dead pets, to make her famed sculptures.

Recently she stared to collect the feathers from Australia's registered pest, the Indian Mynah for her colorful new sculptures, creating
 strange hybrid creatures that are at once visually compelling while remaining off-putting in origin.

The effect is almost that of a mythological beast. While each piece is striking it is also quite morbid to look at. I suppose, it's no stranger then wearing the fur of other animals, but somehow it's disturbing to see nonetheless.


  1. That's what I'm going to do with the hair from your brush.

  2. I think I will add you to romantic gestures creepier in real life/ textual harassment.
