“Inert Wolf”

20131121-193750.jpg

This moving taxidermy sculpture by Galanin is incredibly emotional. “The inability to progress or move forward was the basic concept.” Says the artist. The hindquarters of the wolf have been made into a rug while the first half of the body appears to be clawing the ground trying to move. Apparently the work made some people who viewed it in the exhibition cry, as it is so touching.
The piece is skilfully crafted creating a beautiful heart breaking piece.
