    Wanted a very classy contemporary look to his pieces
    They came out very well as usual. and are Ready to crate to send home.
    Attention paid to every detail from perfect hair patterns in ears to proper eye set to hair patters to the minute details of the noses and lips and facial muscles. All the pieces of amount should be concentrated on individually and then the overall finished piece is as good as it can get. GOOD taxidermy is the SUM of individually created parts.

    Lovely work. I am all on board with the clean lines as well - nothing to distract from perfect artisanship. Congrats to both taxidermist and client.

    Well, I have 6 of 7 up. I had 7, but the Kudu is so big and heavy he pulled out a 300 pound sheet rock plug, no stud. Going to have to improvise. Suggestion welcome.

    Wow. What kind of frame is he built on? You will have to find the stud.
