Peggy Atherton collects road-kill: the squashed and broken bodies of dead road-side animals and birds. She gathers up the corpses of foxes, rabbits, hedgehogs and deer, and crows, magpies and pheasants – and sometimes a dead snake or lizard – and arranges them together in a bed of flower-heads. Sometimes she will make one of these elaborate displays in a quiet location in the countryside, where it becomes a secret shrine.
