Lucia Mocnay creates anthropomorphic taxidermy, crossing disciplines such as sewing, sculpture, taxidermy, millinery & antiquing to create her original pieces.

Gathering inspiration from children’s fables, archetypes, mythologies & folklore, most of the clothes and accessories are authentic antique or vintage pieces sourced from the culture & era the character is representing.

Exploring themes such as our animal instincts, mysticism, science fiction, historical fashion, death, rebirth & everlasting life; her dressed animals evoke elements of macabre mixed with humour & delight those with a curious mind.

All animal remains used in her artwork are sourced ethically.

This site will be updated regularly as new pieces, exhibitions & news emerge.
