Oracle is a natural science curiosities shop located in Kansas City, MO, and Alessandra Dzuba is one of the masterminds behind it.
Oracle, Natural Science Curiosities is a boutique featuring framed insects, unusual taxidermy, beautiful memento mori pieces, decorative terrariums, witchy bundles, skulls and oddities. They strive to acquire humane taxidermy and share a passion for the unique and strange side of the natural world. This thoughtfully curated shop is for lovers of the odd, beautiful, and the bizarre.
Alessandra Dzuba spent most of her childhood days dreaming up animal monsters, pretending to be a mad scientist, and catching and growing butterflies in the city parks of Montreal.
Today, she’s still dreaming and drawing monsters, but with a bachelors in printmaking and psychology, we’re pretty sure she isn’t mad. A nomad at heart, she spends her days in Oracle, while the rest of her time is split between co-running Fraction Print Studio, gallery shows, being a nerd, and playing with bones.
