Nothing Says "Good Eats" like Our Feather Friends Hanging Dead in the Dining Rom

This 19th century pasel piece was found in a woman's garage. While the pastel work is beautiful, the subject matter for the dining room wall is a bit...ummm... old school. These days, we like to believe our dinner flesh comes from a plastic package. Ducks and quails strung up just doesn't ring "good eats" for our modern society.
