Yoko Ono in a nutshell. Or a nutcase.

Either way, gotta love her.

Little clay critter/forest spirit/reaper.
It’s usually shy, but fairly kind and sometimes a bit helpful.
Then every so often it gets a bit angry or lonely or both, and it draws people into the woods until they get lost, waits for them to be near death, then sucks their blood out. Fun stuff.

Remember the elands?

These fellows?

I posted them a few months ago and again earlier today.  Among all of the photos I’ve taken, this is one of my favorites.

However, it’s not doing as well as I had hoped it would.  It’s been rejected from a few photo groups and I haven’t heard back from the critique thread yet.  It has no comments on any site.  It was featured in one RedBubble group, but it has no favorites on RedBubble.

So it’s been driving me crazy.  Is it too dark?  Is it not sharp enough?  Should I dodge the catchlight a bit so it’s more noticeable?  These are my best guesses, but I don’t see how they impact the image so much…

Any ideas/critique/help/advice?  Flames?  Heck, anything short of “photography isn’t art” would be helpful.  I just want to know why this isn’t actually of the quality I perceive it to be; I don’t want to make the same mistakes in my next shots.

rat cube by ~edelias
Taxidermy is one of the stranger art forms, successfully combining the morbid and disturbing with awe and beauty.
No matter how you look at a piece of taxidermy, it is dead.  This is the skin of a dead rat wrapped around a cube.  Even if it were to take on a more natural shape, it would still be dead.  It repulses many.  It reminds us of our own mortality in a way a half slab of ribs cannot.  However, it’s not rotting in the ground or digesting in the stomach of a snake; this dead rat has been given a second life of sorts.  The rat’s life has been commemorated in art, a grand honor for a critter as simple as a fancy rat.
And since I’m tired of writing formally, I’ll just say that natural taxidermy looks great, but it gets boring.  Quickly.  Here’s something fresh and unique.  Or maybe not so fresh, but tanned, preserved, and still very much unique.
