American Natural History Museum
More research into museums, this one the American Natural History Museum, in particular the top photograph of a standing bear, being sculpted for the taxidermy process, and how remarkably human-like it looks in this condition. This observation is related to my research into some of human/animal psychological transference that seems to occur in the projections and yearnings between the human and animal in Hannah Tinti's Preservation. There is also the connection between transferred skills in diorama painting and the relation of such to fine art, between two generations of father and daughter.
