No, these are not taxidermied. They’re hand-crafted bags made by Japanese artist Pico. She makes them one at a time, probably takes forever, and so feels entitled to charge $700 for them. If I were to spend ungodly hours making cat bags, I probably would add a zero to that figure, but that’s just me. They’re actually up for sale on a Japanese Yahoo Auction website, so maybe $700 is what one of them sold for while other may fetch different prices (after reading another article on the topic, that’s exactly what it is. Still… $700?!). I’m not sure since everything is in Japanese and I can’t find proper information. So instead of being an informative post, just revel in pictures of super cute kitty purses and if you’re feeling adventurous, try to navigate the links to figure out how to get your own.
