Hello everyone! Thanks for being so patient. We know it’s been a while since our last post, but we’ve been busy getting some amazing new pieces in the store and we can’t wait to share them with you here on the Loved to Death Blog.  So make sure to check in weekly to see what’s new in store and online.

We are all big fans of art here at Loved to Death, and nothing could be better than specimen art. Extending the life of nature past the confines of death and creating art from it could not be more special or closer to our hearts. 

Today we are excited to share some amazing specimen art pieces from the collection Pheromone by Christopher Marley. 

 

 

European Gold Finch

 

Marley has been hand crafting these pieces for 17 years now with a completely ethical sensibility. 

 

From the artist: 

"Utilizing a huge network of museums, breeders and zoos with whom I've worked over the years, I acquire the specimens that die of natural or incidental causes and preserve them in my trademark aesthetic. 

No organisms are harmed in or for the creation of Reclamation pieces. 

As the availability of most of the Reclamation organisms is entirely unpredictable, each piece is truly one of a kind – some never to be repeated. 

Now you don’t have to choose between your conscience and your passion to experience the earth’s rarest, most exquisite creatures up close. We've reclaimed these exotic vertebrates and created stunning, karma-free artwork that is unsurpassed in impact."
Audra's Favorite: Violet Damsel Fly Diamond 
"I love this piece because of its darkness and fragility. The contrast between the iridescence of the violet wings and the graphite mat sets this piece apart from the rest."
