Hunters display the animals they kill as a form of home decor, thus creating a trophy out of a once living creature. I have created a series of "trophies" that show how ingrained all elements of the creature are with each other with a focus on their anatomy. Elements of their natural environment are present within the piece, thus showing the integration of the animal within nature.
This piece represents the hunting of gorillas for use of their hands, which some cultures falsely believe contain medicinal properties.
