A freezer in artist and amateur taxidermist Charlie Tuesday Gates’ workshop is full of lamb carcasses in London, April 9, 2012. She will use the skin of one lamb to create an Easter inspired artwork, referencing spring and the renewal of life. She has exhibited her work, DIY Taxidermy, at the Menier and Elevator Gallery, among others and performs live taxidermy shows.
The carcass of lamb that died of natural causes. According to Gates on her blog: “I spent 2 hours trying to crowbar something to do out the freezer the night before. I was trying to reach a hare (it being Easter and all) but the only thing that was budging was this lamb.”
Gates washes the body before skinning it.

“I then turned the spot light on and…boom.”
“Some people don’t believe in God but this had me question a few things about fate, destiny and all that stuff. Thus ‘Like a Lamb to the Slaughter’ was born.”
