Faux taxidermy is the work of Etsy stall ‘hodihomedecor’.
‘Hodi’ is Swahili for ‘welcome to come in’, and is a common greeting in East Africa and Kenya. Each item is created by artist, and former advertising extraordinaire, Julia.
All creations are made from resin. They are then hand painted, with a variety of colours for you to choose from. Perfect for a child’s bedroom, a quirky living room, or any space that needs some livening up. There are a variety of creatures, from real-life animals, to mythical species.
We particularly like the electric blue dinosaur leaping out from the wall.
Prices start at US$16 for smaller, stand-alone items, and US$59 for the larger, wall-mounted pieces.
For those who don’t know, Etsy is an amazing online marketplace, which displays unique, home-made creations from independent sellers. Have a peruse of some of its other stores to discover more new and exciting designs in the realm of jewellery, homewares, and clothing.
