    Parrot

    It’s the 21st century and taxidermy is fashionable once more. Gone are the days where gentleman hunters were mounting the spoils of their morbid excursions, this Victorian art-form is currently experiencing a female-led resurgence that has a reverence for wildlife and conservation at its heart. It is this renewed interest in the art of taxidermy that The Metropolitan Club, in association with Hendrick’s Gin and Highwic, supported by the Auckland Museum, will explore in The Art of Death exhibition.
