Russell Batten

I have worked as an artist for over 20 years. I design, construct and install museum display models, mainly natural history but also human biology. My model insects and full sized dinosaur work is now housed in museums all over the world, including The Austrian Natural History Museum in Vienna, The Oxford University Museum and The American Natural History Museum in New York, to name only a few. Some time ago I was asked to reproduce a number of genuine Egyptian mummies to enable a museum to use them in a travelling exhibition as they would be much stronger than the real things. The photos shown below reflect this style of work although other photos of my natural history work will follow after I have scanned them. I also fashion strange and quirky collectable items for Ebay (under the user name thefleshkrafter) such as shrunken heads, mummified items, replica holy relics and other strange objects that come either from my imagination or from the commission requests of my buyers.
