Enrique Gomez De Molina is a taxidermy artist from Miami, Florida. De Molina gained recognition for his taxidermy for a few reasons. Firstly, he creates some very unusual creatures when he is mixing up parts from several animals. Secondly, and more notably, he was sentenced for wildlife smuggling. De Molina says that his aim is to raise awareness regarding the danger faced by a range of species. He wanted to depict the dangers of genetic engineering and human intervention.

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.” – Enrique Gomez De Molina
