Jessica Joslin - Taxidermy art artist. Are these real bones? It depends on the piece. Some of the bones are real, some are not. For all protected and endangered species, I create replicas. For the sculptures that incorporate real animal bones, I work with licensed osteological suppliers. I have a strong affinity for animals and take care to deal only with reputable companies, whose specimens are legally and ethically obtained.
I really like the idea to do with skulls and skeletons, i want to some how embed this into the creature design. One way could be to have the creature ware the skull on it's head like some kind of helmet
