£1m price tag on roadkill artwork

A controversial artist who makes sculptures from roadkill has put a £1m price tag on one of his latest pieces.

Adam Morrigan has named the artwork, which features two mallard ducklings that have been sewn together, Road Kill (Mappe Mundi).

"The work I do is aggressive and pulls no punches," said the 38-year-old, from Horsley, Gloucestershire.

He said the high price tag was first and foremost what he believed the piece was worth.

"The price is part of the concept", he said.

"The price tag is giving a value to what people see as valueless and these ducklings are really precious little animals."
