Just read THIS fascinating old article on the 2008 fire at Paris’ famous taxidermy establishment, Deyrolle. I’ve yet to visit and am dying to see all its beasts and butterflies in person. The collection began in 1831 and since the fire has been lovingly restored thanks to the efforts of Prince Louis Albert de Broglie (pictured at top), Hermès, Christie’s, and the French Army. I know some find it repulsive, but I definitely have an odd fascination with taxidermy. Wes Anderson does too.
I’m curious how you feel about it ladies—intrigued or horrified?
