Walter Potter: Taxidermy of the Weird

Walter Potter was a 19th century self-taught taxidermist who made wonderfully weird anthropomorphic displays of dead animals partaking in everyday activities. His collection was housed together in a local museum until the early 2000s when a lack of funds caused the collection to be split up and sold at auction. A documentary about his work has been made and a preview is shown below.
