    Mr Shelton wanted a great cool contempary look to his safari as he will be displaying them all on one wall in the future 4" turns on the Kudu and Gemsbok for now for special placement and the other will fall into place for his long Safari wall in the future.....

    Sandrat I'm still working on his genet and Caracal mount. He gave me free reign on poses for wall pedestal whatever I wanted , all wall pedestals and extended the Lechwe shoulder to show the marking and more color....

    BTW Marius KMG Hunting Safari's
    Very nice capes. No issues that were not normal. Happy again with your work on your clients skins and whomever your dip pack company was . Even the hard to tan carcal and genet came thru real good and 40% of those we get are garbage to work with, These 2 are good !
