"Maybe the vogue for heads on walls is coming to an end..."???

The taxidermy thing started about four years ago and has grown tremendously. Pushing along with Steampunk and the constant need for trendy New York interiors to find the edge by reincorporating element of the past. Spurred on by a piece today by Sheila at Gawker about a deer head falling last night and hitting a customer at Freeman's Bar (and our own visit last month), we want to know what you think....(more pics below the jump)....

This pic is from a Gawker reader's trip last night. You can see that the original deer head (above) has been replaced with an even BIGGER moose head below:

From NYMag's review: "located at the end of some godforsaken alley, as frivolously antiquated as a Wes Anderson film set, stuffed-and-skewered animals adorn the walls, including, in some demented nod to Proust's food-triggered memories, a vicious swan,"
