Private Project

Natural Selection

Woman-Doe works as a professional exhibit at the museum in which she hangs from a wall as a dead animal alongside the rest of the trophies of the same kind; deer and doe heads. The life she lives is a definition of a routine; she spends her free time walking about and cleaning her apartment. One morning, after a terrifying nightmare, she notices that small horns grew out on top of her head. This makes it impossible for her to pull her head through the hole in the wall at the museum. She knows she will be punished in one way or another, and her only way out is towards freedom...
