Sculptor and artist Iris Schieferstein has been using dead animals for her works, which fetch up to £3,900 and have proved a hit with extreme dressers such as Lady Gaga. She said:
“Creating the shoes is ugly work, taking the meat out is not nice, like any taxidermy. When I began working with dead animals I would pick them up from the street. But they are protected by the government in Germany, and so after ten years they tried to put me in prison. Now I use my butcher.”
That’s creepy indeed but at least she only utilizes the by-product of humans slaughtering animals.
