The Installation shots from the University of Maine are haunting and solemn and made me pause in the thought of these creatures death for the want of their pelts.
Ruth Marshall's intent of making these knit pelts as a way to draw awareness to the plight of endangered species is admirable. I became aware of the senseless way the want of beauty makes many of us ugly in our want to possess it.
A thought provoking book.
