    Great post, Jerome ~ I have to agree with Frederik that my favorite is the lion chasing the vulture off the zebra kill - it's very realistic. Thanks for sharing the photos as I didn't have a chance to see much of the show.

    I really enjoy the lions full mounts... many of them show very realistic face expressions....

    The SCI Annual Meeting have maybe the best taxidermist all over the world. It is a pity to hunt a beautifull and sometimes expensive animal, and later the shoulder mount is ruined by the bad done work of a wrongly named " profesional taxidermist".

    That Leopard coming off the wall sure would do something for the entrance way to the house.

    I do like the pride of Lions.


    Cats have to be the toughest.
    Too many look bug eyed..

    Some great looking art in there. I agree that cats are the hardest to perfect, they always look cross-eyed to me. Thanks for sharing.

    Seeing the first pic of a Lord Derby Eland mount reminds me that I want to hunt one so badly that it hurts.
    The same goes for buff when I see the last pic of a buff mount.

    I have come back to look at this Cheetah mount ten times. I am so used to seeing pedestals and dioramas.... this is so novel.

    I expect there are members here who have seen these displays but for those who haven't, here are a few shots of the dioramas within the shop.

    Looks great, our local cabelas (Omaha) Africa section is not the best in quality and seems pretty much old mounts. I really like the sable mount, very nice work.
