i get that this is art and all, but i have a pet pigeon, and about screamed when i saw this. to me, it’s as if i say i don’t particularly care for babies, and found one gutted somewhere, took a picture of it, and put it on etsy, with no warning to the general public.
is there any way you could put a ‘mature’ or something across it, so that other pigeon lovers like myself aren’t so unpleasantly shocked?
i would appreciate it, and i’m sure they would too.
thanks in advance.

I responded very simply;
Life is shocking. Life is mature.
I don’t believe that this is a mature image in any way, shape or form.
I’m contemplating using her words, unattributed as an endorsement in the description of the piece.

Pigeon lovers. Honestly. Oh, the image at the top of this post holds a link to the piece on Etsy should you wish to be SHOCKED or OFFENDED by the world around you.
