i re read joseph's post and i really don't think he came across as critical
at all. i agree that it is important to be sensitive to these issues and i
think made a good point. some people will find the use of animal body parts
in a still life hard to deal with. we art teachers especially must be able
to appreciate the potential expressive/emotional impact of artistic subject
matter.

cool, huh?!)
