Language of Horns

 Language of Horns
 David Eisenhour

Artist's Statement:
Biologists study the Horned Beetle to understand the evolutionary development of horns, or the “language of horns.” Horns are used in similar ways by all of the life forms that possess them: primarily as weapons to defend territory. It occurred to me that the custom of mounting the head of an animal on the wall of a collector is also an abstract way of defending territory – either mental or physical – and another expression of the language of horns.
