{The Gallery} – Week 6 Ugly

Tara’s Gallery subject this week is Ugly – a pretty hard one and I’ve been thinking about it all weekend (it’s been so hard!) and this is what I’ve come up with – Ollie the dead Eagle Owl (sorry Ollie!) My Mum inherited it from her Grandmother.  Seriously have you ever seen anything so macabre?  I feel bad for saying it, as it the one and only family heirloom we have, but it sure is ugly!

    1. Oh bless her! The Owl itself is beautiful, it’s just the being dead and in a glass jar bit that freaks me out 😉

  1. That would give me the heebee jeebees if it was in our house. Don’t think I could. No, definitely not,no.

  2. Yup, that qualifies. Dead stuff doesn’t do it for me either! Would much rather see one of those swooping through the air 🙂

  3. Oh that is ugly. Sorry Ollie. My Dad had a stuffed pheasant for years which my Mum hated but he refused to part with it. Coming to think of it, I haven’t seen it in a long time, I wonder if she finally managed to off-load him?

  4. meeeep! I’m actually a bit scared! I don’t get the whole keeping dead things deelie. makes me shudder a bit! which is a shame, because he’s quite beautiful really… in a dead sort of way!

    (oh, and please don’t hate me- my blog has moved – again – full explanation at the old one, but it you fancy updating your link, that would be super 🙂 xx)
