Kohei Nawa

Nawa creates taxidermy sculptures then covers them with glass and acrylic orbs if different sizes. These orbs magnify the anal underneath, such as on this leopard, you can see the detailed patterning of its coat.

These orbs also give a grace to the animal and a protection, allowing the viewer to see the animal in a new light.

The pieces are a beautiful modern tale on the traditional art of taxidermy.
