Southern Lens - The Art of Taxidermy

by Georgia Merton - Aug 07, 2020

“No pets, no people, no politicians."

Those are the rules of engagement for fourth generation Arrowtown taxidermist David Jacobs.

David talks with the Southern Lens team about the science and the art of how he makes a living, how the post Covid world is seeing a resurgence of cottage industries and the extraordinary, and touching, relationship David has both with his rural clients and the animals he brings back to life.
