Unless you're deep in your Vegan wares, the chances are that your wardrobe consists of fashion pieces that contain elements of dead animal.

In most cases though, the end product is so far removed from the source that it's easy to forget that your feet, hands or shoulders are wrapped in death. But German artist Iris Shieferstein is doing her bit to help us remember that connection through her range of glamourous ladies' footwear.

Combining taxidermy techniques with traditional manufacturing materials, Shieferstein's shoes embrace the original features of the animal from which they've been sourced like no other. These shoes are incredible.
