AsylumArtwork's Shop Announcement

FOLLOW US ON INSTAGRAM! @AsylumArtwork

Due to the new restrictions for selling specimens on Etsy, I have a limited number of items in my shop here. Spending money on listing new items in this shop while having to censor the listing so that nobody can see the item in the first photo is not financially practical and very disheartening to know that scientific specimens are now considered "mature content" and must be hidden from general audiences. I will be moving my shop elsewhere at some point, unless Etsy decides to do away with these restrictions. But, in the meantime, you can follow me on INSTAGRAM @AsylumArtwork for more updates and awesome new items.

I've got some cool things in the works, so check back often! I am listing new items all the time! Some are original creations, and some are unique vintage or antique items from my personal collection, so keep your eyeballs peeled :) If you are looking for something specific, send me a convo and I'll let you know what I have.

My artwork strives to honor the life of each of the animals that I preserve.
Please Note:
NO ANIMALS ARE KILLED FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF CREATING THIS ARTWORK!
I use the remains of animals that are already deceased to create my artwork, and these materials would otherwise be considered "garbage" and be discarded if I didn't use it. I think it's disrespectful to Mother Nature to not try to use every part of the animal that has already passed.
I NEVER kill any of the animals that are used in my artwork!
I love animals and would never harm them!
The specimens that I preserve come from a variety of sources such as:
-Animals that died naturally
-By-products of the food industry (such as fetal animals) which would have otherwise been discarded as waste or ground up into commercial pet food.
-Road kill
-By-products of the fur industry (such as skulls and innards)
-Nuissance animals that are removed because they pose harm or may be considered a threat to people (again, I NEVER personally kill these animals, however I put their remains to use once they are deceased, rather than let them be thrown away as garbage)
