    That’s a lot of dead crows.

  2. Polly Wilson says:

    So you think the killing of 20,000 birds for the sake of art beautiful? I can’t begin to fathom the unnecessay cruelty of this.

  3. Chris Broughton says:

    Luckily, since no birds will have been harmed in the making of this sculpture, you don’t have to. Crows moult every summer.

  4. Coastal Currents says:

    Kate is donated feathers from all over the world. All shed naturally.

  5. Polly Wilson says:

    Thats a relief although you still have to question how the crows have been kept in order to gather up the feathers.

  6. Cheryl Bell says:

    Interesting discussion. My art is all about corvids and raptors, but the persecution aspect. I have asked the crow hive, i.e. crow owners, what they think about this. I know that Kate is extremely ethical in her sourcing, but the provenance of dead crows used for taxidermy can be problematic, feathers or otherwise. I look forward to all my concerns being proved wrong. Thanks Polly, I will report back!

  7. Arthur Bosence says:

    Nice!

  8. Vicky Nagy says:

    I am not so much concerned with the source of the feathers as the reason. Why? Am I missing something?

  9. Emily Thomas says:

    I’m afraid I am failing to see the beauty in this. I’d love to hear why you think it is beautiful. Can you?
