I've seen the FeeJee Mermaid in person at Ripley's in St. Augustine. In 1842, thousands of gullible onlookers paid 25 cents to see this creature that RT Barnum had coined the "Feejee Mermaid". It wasn't until Barnum grew older that he admitted that his mermaid was the "World's Greatest Fake". A monkey head and a fish fused together. What does this have in common with Enrique de Molina's creations? Well, for starters, they're a fusion of two to three different animals, and the result is positively bizarre.
Enrique de Molina puts into question the possibilities of artificial evolution with his creepy and macabre taxidermy animal art. He says, “The impossibility of my sculpture brings me both joy and sadness at the same time. The joy comes from seeing and experiencing the Fantasy of the work but that is coupled with the sadness of the fact that we are destroying all of these beautiful things.”
