Inspired by the golden age of Victorian taxidermy, Tennant’s illuminated cases have been featured in the Wall Street Journal and leading art and design boutiques around the world. Built in his Long Island studio, the interiors reveal whimsical scenes from the natural world and freeze moments in time.
