Cool Hunting Capsule Video: Zoomorphic Collection
Our video on London's most extensive and unusual collection of taxidermic antiquities
In this video we catch up with Emma Hawkins, co-curator of the 2010 Hawkins Zoomorphic Collection exhibit in London. Put together in association with her father J.B. Hawkins, a 40-year-veteran of the antique industry, the collection contains over 200 animal objects, from hummingbird jewelry to a bull head snuff box. Here Emma shows off some prime examples of functional and entertaining taxidermy that has lasted into the 21st century.
