Moirae with AGA fan favourite

“I was immediately drawn to this chair because it is so wild – and out of the wild. For some reason whenever I see taxidermy as art it brings on a warm feeling, like being cozy in a cabin. Being Metis I grew up in a family of hunters so it is certainly a part of my roots. I love how the design, texture, and style of Freeman's chair and how it brings the outdoors inside, providing me with this nostalgic feeling. I find the ideas Paul Freeman explores fascinating; death, beauty, even mind control. I can certainly relate to the fascination with some of these topics, and I really enjoy seeing how he portrays this through his work.”
