Juxtapositions










I'm no fan of hunting, but this Paris museum - Musee de la Chasse et de la Nature (or Museum of Hunting and Nature) - is fascinating. The juxtaposition of an ultra-sophisticated and seemingly civilized setting with the stuffed deer, bears, and well, rather disturbing paintings, is unlike anything I've seen in any other museum. Well worth a visit, unless you really can't stomach anything related to hunting.

I've been to restaurants with stuffed heads and various other stuffed animals around the place. ow, that IS off-putting.

But the mix depicted in the photos is certainly interesting.
