Sheep Cabinets

Inspired by the works of Salvador Dalí, Oscar Tusquets, an artist in Spain, built cabinets using taxidermied sheep. They specifically reference this image by Dalí, entitled “Interpretation Project for a Stable-Library.” You can see the sheep model on the left side of the picture.

Tusquets worked with Deyrolle, a famous French taxidermy studio in Paris, to make 21 sheep cabinets, each of which will sell for about $82,000. Each cabinet has bronze feet, a tabletop and a handy drawer.

There will be 20 white sheep and 1 black sheep with white legs. The Daily Mail explains that the black one is a reference to a Catalan expression, “a black sheep with white legs,” which is something that is impossible.
