Madama Tia Resleure is my kind of artist. She creates haunting artwork out of taxidermy. This may sound morbid, and perhaps it is, but it's also melancholy and very memento mori. And it's not a bad thing for us all to remember our own mortality and that even:
Imperial Caesar dead and turned to clay
Might stop a hole to keep the wind away
