So regarding my previous post, I’ve been working really hard on the pelt of my beloved dog that passed away a couple of years ago. It has been in the freezer ever since and it’s like time stood still, literally a moment frozen in time.

Although the skin is still the same, my feelings are different this time. Grief has been replaced with a welcoming feeling of gratitude and love for what was, and anticipation and excitement for how I’m gonna work on it this time.

I’ve been debating on letting go of the skin for a while, like I did with his heart, because I am practising to let go of attachments, but my mom encouraged me to try to keep it at least, and I’m glad I’m trying.

It is currently in a pickle bath, and I’m not sure if this is gonna work out, I am no expert (I’ve tried several tanning methods on smaller animals in the past and nothing ended up perfect, but I remember how nice it felt to work on them and just try as I go).

With each mistake, such as the tearing of the ears, some holes and hair loss on the pelt (I’m not sure if it’s slipping, or because he was old and had cushings disease) I feel a bit of sadness. I am a perfectionist and can’t let go of things. I’m aware of these sensations though and try to embrace them with kindness and acceptance, to work on it without getting attached, but remain excited for whatever shall be, and that it’s ok to fail. Whatever happens, it will be alright.

Working on this is very meditative for me, and I hope it will end up being a sacred object in future my life, but as a friend said, sacred objects have their own will, so if it can’t get preserved, then be it so.


Hopefully to be continued. :)

For the people who have been following me for a long time, you might know how I processed my dog’s bones and organs when he passed away, I also kept his skin which has been stored in the freezer for a couple of years and I am finally ready to work on it. It is currently thawing.

I’m excited and nervous and I want to share this process here. I know a lot of people follow for my art so I understand if you don’t want to see this, I want to be considerate so I would like to ask you what hashtags I can use for you so you don’t see it.

Kind regards,

Meike
