Date: Thursday, May 5th
Time: 7pm
Admission: $20
Location: Morbid Anatomy Museum, 424 Third Avenue, 11215 Brooklyn NY

Join us for an evening with professional taxidermist and Morbid Anatomy Museum resident Divya Anantharaman Zweigart as she shows how a peacock is transformed from raw specimen to a finished taxidermy piece! She will be demonstrating the preparatory steps of the taxidermy process, basic bird anatomy and its relevance to a successful taxidermy piece, and describing specific skinning, fleshing, and preservation techniques used for birds. She will also be discussing conservation laws such as the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, and sharing general knowledge about the taxidermy industry. The floor will be open for Q&A during and after the demo.

The peacock used in this demonstration is a domestically raised bird that died of old age.

Divya Anantharaman is a Morbid Anatomy Museum Taxidermist in Residence and a Brooklyn based artist whose taxidermy practice was sparked by a lifelong fascination with the intersection of natural mythology and science.
