Necro-Fetish, by Ms. Graveyard Dirt
A necro-fetish in the making!
Knowing that the stag’s organic fibre body will absorb - and most importantly, stain - I’ve begun marking my spectral herd spirit doll with the physical essence of every roadkill deer that I have the honour of rescuing, so when their sacred remains are sold on I still have a spiritual reminder of all of the deer I’ve helped “resurrect”.
It’s impossible to make out in this photo, but the first spot of blood to mark this necro-fetish is a third eye fingerprint of my New Year menstrual blood on the deer’s straw-coloured forehead.
