Peter Gronquist’s Taxidermy Gun Antlers

 

 

Peter Gronquist makes the unlikely combination of taxidermy and symbols of power and luxury. Taking the traditional forms of taxidermy, Peter creates gold and silver antlers for the stuffed animals that are transformed into an array of powerful firearms and luxury brand logos. One could argue that using the ever so popular image of guns and brand names might be a rehashed idea that keeps popping up over and over again within the street art/low brow community but you have to admit that there is a wow factor when you come across a giant stuffed deer with Rambo style machine guns pointed at both sides. What do you think? Are these simply gimmicky combinations with not much depth or the next best thing since sliced bread?
