The museum was facing budget cuts.

be careful with that hacket, kid, you’ll cut your pants off… OOPS!!! too late
Looks so natural, it gives me chills. And stomach cramps.
I bless the rains.
Amazing! Live animals…stuffed humans!
This brings an entirely new meaning to the phrase, “Lions, Tiger and Bears; oh my!” The son on the left’s face explains how I feel about this photo. Any approximation on the year? I’d say 70′s/80′s based on the short length.
‘awwww Dad…do we hafta get our pictures taken like this? The kids and school might find out.’
Marney required all of her guests to volunteer at her local museum.
This looks like a Photoshop project, to me. The boy’s face is from a famous painting (I cannot recall the name or artist though), Sonny Bono’s head looks pasted on some guy’s body with the arm placed, er, posed (?) double entendre’ style…. The scale of everything and some animal figures appear trimmed by scissors and glue pasted. Interesting and a bit disturbing.
Seriously, get over your Photoshop fetish folks! Instead of deconstructing the photo, say something pithy and entertaining. If you can’t say something pithy and entertaining, don’t say anything at all.
Uh what does pithy mean? I just want to make sure my comments are pithy enough before I post
Hmmm…the dad’s head DOES look out of proportion with the rest of him.
Photoshopped? Come on, get real.
What is Dad supposed to be doing??
Dad is tickling the cheetah with a what appears to be a feather.
Swiss Family Rosenblatt
peed my pants laughing at your comment!
I am speechless. “Swiss Family Rosenblatt”. That was so funny, I can’t even talk. LMFAO
swiss ? looks americana
He had tried to out’fox’ her,but she knew he was always ‘lion’ to her,you know ‘monkey’ing around. She was still not aware that he was a ‘cheetah’.
No animals were hurt in the filming of this family photo…… oops, maybe they were?
I’m trying to figure out whose idea this was. None of them look happy about being there.
The background for this jungle scene seems to be some northern fir tree forest.
And did you notice the red fox in the bottom left hand side? Hmm, a little bit of Africa in Vermont.
Dad kinda looks like Sonny Bono!
I’m. So. Jealous. This has got to be the best family vacation photo EVER!
The girl on the right won’t kill anything with that rubber-tipped spear.
Didn’t we already see this one a few months back?
“And after we get our picture taken at Frank’s Animal World and Sub Shop we’ll jump in the wagon queen and head down US-131 and visit the big fiberglass trout in Kalkaska and then zoom right to Wallyworld”
“Now, where did I put the coupons for visiting the World’s Largest Ball of Twine?”
Did you leave them at the house of mud?
What a fox !!!!!!! No really…bottom left hand corner…
That was bearly even funny.
You’re lion…you laughed
The acting bug runs strong in that family
Not 100% certain but I don’t think mom is real happy to be there. Gonna’ be a cold night at Mike’s house.
is that the “dad” or is it a wax sculpture of Sonny Bono?
LOL I was wondering the same thing!
Had the same thought! I worked in a museum 30 years ago that had “life-like” dioramas, but whoever staged this one went “overkill” on the elements!
The idea is not to use every prop in storage, nor is it intended to err on the side of fake.
Budget cuts indeed!
Ugh, I hate real stuffed animals. They are so creepy. I never understood why anyone would want to decorate their house with corpses?
And the boy on the left with the shield is posing so well he looks like he’s stuffed too. *shudders*
Me too, I always feel bad for the animals, that they ended up that way. Look at the poor lion that Shield Boy is leaning on. She’s about to topple over. It reminds me of that Gary Larson cartoon where the guy shoots the bear who’s peacefully lapping water at a stream and then later when he stuffs the corpse he fashions the bear in a threatening, teeth-bearing snarl.
yes, real stuffed humans would be so much better o_0
It’s hard to tell which is stuffed and which is real!!
