    Not sure what I think about the head in rug...I prefer the flat skin. But if that's what Mama wants, that's what she should get! A possible solution to the cumbersome head on the floor would be what I did with my bear rug. Built this stand for it, so it's not flat on the floor and also not taking up an entire wall.

    @The Artistry of Wildlife thanks for the pictures and heads up about the felt and glue vs stitching. I went with the rounded one like your picture with a felt back and leather trim and asked the taxidermist if he could/would stitch it vs glue and he said yes. So thanks everyone!
