    Cool, I would settle for just a Lion rug. And the hunt of course.

    Is the Lion propped? Is the Vulture hanging from a wire? How does this work? Who has the place to display this? Are they museum pieces or do people have these pieces done for their collections?

    A rug or hunt would be nice!
    All of the animals are secured in the habitat base via metal rods. The lion's feet, either the left or the right (possibly both in this case due to weight), have metal rods in them that run up the legs and attach to the habitat. If you look closely at the vulture, its left foot is most likely attached to the wood log. We use the grass to cover it all up and make it look nice. Most of these pieces are for clients who have large rooms for these types of displays. I don't believe we've ever done anything for a museum; however, it's something I'd like to see if we could do. Thanks for the questions!

    Thanks, id suggest most museums are established and do not require any further pieces. Which is a shame as modern methods and ideas have probably come a long way. The Adelaide Museum in Australia hasnt changed in years so i suspect displays are older than me
    The minority would be offended if we set new displays of ethically hunted free range animals for public viewing.

    We need displays like this on historical reasons and so kids can see these things up close.

    Good on the private collectors as unfortunately some things will become increasingly difficult in the future.

    CBH-in the past couple years our local college remodeled their “life science” museum and upgraded it immensely. It now contains life size elephant bull and several giraffes/rhino etc as well as new North American big game in extravagant dioramas. They even did a room with all of the worlds waterfowl and game birds with magnificent woodwork and glass to protect the mounts. Much of it was donated by private collectors. It was fun to see a museum older than I am upgraded and improved to modern day capabilities!
    I’ve been in several professional athletes houses where they built special rooms just to house their trophies complete with mountains built right into the wall-it is surprisingly common among the wealthy and many of them are gracious hosts as well as serious hunters.
