Wonder Cabinet - Amy Walsh

Specimen 10. Common Hare/Narcomedusae on Fossils of Indiana book

Specimen 6. Barn Mouse/Frog/Sea Flora on Geology and Birds of Indiana book 

I love Amy Walsh's silkscreen prints of fantastical chimeras. Any evocation of medieval bestiaries mixed with natural history and old books is fine by me. I only regret they don't come in pet form. I want to snuggle up with a bunny polyp on the couch (or in a large saltwater tank depending on the physiology at play). Aren't they lovely?
