Eurasian-Elk

From@intelligentlifemagazine: when a natural-history museum is renovated, what happens to its inhabitants? For our photo essay, Helge Skodvin captured some unusual removals at the University Museum of Bergen. This large Eurasian elk was shot in Norway, on September 20th 1883, by Nils Anker, a shopkeeper. After 130 years in the museum’s upper halls, it was clad in gauze, then lifted out of a window. Skodvin, perched on the scaffolding erected for the purpose, took a picture that evokes a famous scene in “La Dolce Vita”.
