Project Mapping Taxidermy

I'm working with Kristen Gunther, a grad student at UWyo, on visually interpreting her map of taxidermy and gun shops in Laramie. Here are the works in progress:
I am trying to interpret taxidermy through the fiber arts, since working with actually taxidermy materials would take a lot of time and knowledge that I don't have. I painted the antelope form red and I'm going to be putting pins in it to represent where the shops are. The weasels are made of a lace shower curtain and a whole bunch of zigzag stitch. I also stretched a deer hide over an embroidery hoop. I'll post it once it's dry.
