Shauna Richardson's 'crochetdermy' exhibition in Leicester shop

An artist has turned an empty Leicester shop into an exhibition of crocheted animals, designed to mimic taxidermy.

It is the work of artist Shauna Richardson, who created the world's largest single-handed crochet sculpture as part of the 2012 Cultural Olympiad.

"The shop was empty for at least two years," said Ms Richardson. "It was quite sad and now it's been restored to its former glory."

People can view the "crochetdermy" through the window of 33 Cank Street in Leicester city centre.
