Polly Morgan in her studio

Popular with the Victorians, the art of taxidermy is being brought up to date by artist Polly Morgan.

Her sometimes macabre and unsettling works, including a coffin bursting with open-mouthed chicks and a rat asleep in a champagne glass, have won her celebrity fans including Kate Moss and considerable media coverage.

This film offers an intimate peek at the strange and wonderful art of Polly Morgan, including an insight into how she sources the animals which become art works.
