    Once again, gorgeous. If I am ever down your way we will have to talk about costs of spending a day in your shop with you. I know my work would benefit.

    I agree, as always incredible work.

    That neck makes the horns look smaller. Perspective...

    PARA45 Thank you for the compliments. We don't just do African we can give you this quality workmanship and artistic realism in any animal from any country. Our bears are second to none and our sheep and antlered game mounts are just as impressive. Take a look at our website www.artistryofwildlife.com and look around. Hope to hear from you and many AR members.
    We do have a special pricing for A R members !


    Limcroma Safari's I thank you for the compliments on my posts about my work. If you have any clients that are in the U S and are looking for the best and fair priced for the quality I produce. Please Note that I do all the mounts with my partner Jamie. No low level employees ever touch a mount. Your clients talk to me from day one all the way thru the process. I will give your clients the best service quality and delivery time they could even expect and your company would have quite the rep of pointing your clients in the proper direction. Thanks again for enjoying my postings of my taxidermy. Dennis
