Moscow artist makes intricate animal skull art to die for

Moscow tattoo artist Karina Diuba gives dead animals a second life by turning their skulls into detailed works of art, as shown in footage shot in Moscow on Tuesday. What began as a hobby two years ago has almost become a part-time job as a recent spike in interest in her work has resulted in Karina receiving orders from all over Russia. However, she has strict rules as to where her materials... Еще are sourced. «These are animals that died naturally. I don't take trophies or buy them from hunters. I only take what Mother Nature gives,» she said, adding «I try to use as much organic material in my work as possible to be closer to nature.» Karina admits that her work is not to everyone's taste and she has received a mixed reaction. «The attention [I have received] really surprises me. Some people have written to me, saying it's cool and interesting, and that they would like to have something similar at home.» However, members of Russia's orthodox population were not so impressed. Karina says that they sometimes call her «derogatory names» and say «it's ungodly, and that I'm ungodly, judging by my appearance, and that I should burn in hell.» Karina takes any criticism all in her stride, saying, «I don't understand why religious people treat me like this if we're all supposed to be kind to one another.»
