New favourite artist

So after having the thoughts about the banning of battery hens, and animals rights in general, i had a little look online for any artists who share my political views about the cruelty to animals.
This is when i came across New Zealand based, English artist Angela Singer.
I love her use of recycled taxidermy animals to portray the cruelly of hunting and killing of animals by covering them in what would seems to be beautiful jewels... but that actually ooze out blood red beads from where the animal has been cut open...
She uses various animals, having them donated to her by collectors when the taxidermy has been damaged.
