Lost in the Aftermath by NaturePunk Lost in the Aftermath by NaturePunk
This was a joint project intended to exemplify humanity's modern disconnection from Nature. The hunter is wearing modern clothes and exists in a modern setting, yet is using primitive weapons and techniques to 'survive' in a world which has been all but destroyed by Man's inability to live in harmony with the planet.

The wolf in the image is called Teva. She's my personal headdress. She and her sister were both removed from a population in Southeast Alaska by a friend of mine who works with the State Fish and Wildlife Department in population control.

Once Teva was tanned so that she could not rejoin the Earth, I purchased her to make her into the headdress above. Due to some damage to the leather and a missing rear foot, her hide was not deemed suitable for traditional taxidermy and would be otherwise bound for the fur market to be made into clothing instead.

She is the first wolf I ever mounted, and I’m very pleased with the way she turned out considering. From start to finish, it seemed that Teva’s creation from tanned pelt to finished headdress came together like a dream.

Photography by Teddy Anderson. Editing and taxidermy by me.

Nothing says impressive like wearing an actual wolf head.

This might sound weird, but you two look like twin spirits... despite her being dead and all.

Looks great. =D
