He uses a lot of real animals in his art ... preserved in giant tanks of formaldehyde. There was a cow, cut in half with each half in a separate tank and you could walk through the cow and see all of the internals, including the baby that was tucked inside. I didn't include the pictures of that one. The worst one for me was the flies. It was a giant tank with a live decapitated cow, blood running all down and across the floor and flies everywhere! I couldn't even take a picture it was so disturbing!
But not all of it was gruesome, the butterflies were quite beautiful and the pills were funny!

|Upon closer inspection, the jewels were in fact medicine!! I thought it was hilarious!! What a creative way to display your medicine cabinet! :-)|
|Beautiful butterfly display ... looks like stained glass windows|
