The above was a description of the Horniman museum I read recently before I visited with Lovely Grey at the weekend. Having viewed the contents I am mystified why anyone would choose that particular adjective. It all seems perfectly normal to me.....I jest! In all truth the thing that unsettled me the most was the case full of stuffed pooch heads...it's hardly as if I've never seen animal heads mounted up as hunting trophies before but dogs? I found it really quite distasteful even though there is no rationale behind my reaction. I can only think that as a dog lover it seems I am more culturally hard wired than I had appreciated!

I believe that Damien Hurst wanted to buy the entire collection. He offered £1 million, but it was turned down.Delete
Sadly true although I read that he was too late with his bid but a great shame nevertheless. I was fascinated when I saw it.Delete
