The Outdoor Pressroom has a story today about decorating for the eco-conscious vegan man.
… we see items like this “green recycled cardboard” deer head, promoted as “taxidermy without the guilt.” Made for the “modern, eco-conscious vegetarian man” who wants to “use interior design to demonstrate his masculine, yet environmentally sensitive, attributes.”
The story has a link to the website GreenProphet.com which has a whole story about an Israeli company named Crembo making the cardboard deer head mounts.
Karen Chernick, the author of the Green Prophet article, writes:
In centuries past, mounted deer (or other animal) heads were considered a type of trophy – an item that illustrated the skills and capabilities of the hunter who killed the deer. If a man had a deer head on his wall, you would assume that he was virile, manly, capable of taking care of his little woman and kids, and probably a few other things as well. But what is the modern, eco-conscious vegetarian man to do when he too wants to use interior design to demonstrate his masculine, yet environmentally sensitive, attributes? Play on the classic mounted deer head and hang a “green” cardboard version.
Demonstrating masculine attributes by displaying a cardboard deer head? I’d call it faux deer for faux men.
As I said in the title, I blame all those estrogens in soy milk.
