I recently saw a crochet rhino head online that I loved and it reminded me that I’ve been intending to do a roundup of taxidermy-style crochet art. Here’s that roundup!
Shauna Richardson of the Lionheart Project is probably the artist best known for taxidermy-style crochet (or “crochetdermy” as she calls it). This is just one of her many detailed realistic-looking taxidermy crochet animals.
Donya Coward is a UK textile artist who works with vintage materials, including old crochet, and found objects to create pet portraits, wall-mounted heads and more.
Kid Crochet makes whimsical miniature crochet taxidermy pieces; she also does them using needlefelting
Etsy’s Ministry of Craft sells taxidermy-inspired crochet animals
And finally here’s the crochet rhino I mentioned at the beginning of this post, via A La Sascha
