Sometimes referred to as skull mounts, European taxidermy mounts are where you have the skull of the animal displayed, sometimes with horns or antlers, depending on the animal that you’re working with. These items make up a major portion of the taxidermy work worldwide, and they’re increasingly popular in the United States too. They have a distinctive aesthetic, with a chillingly beautiful impact on any room that they’re situated in. If you want to have a slightly more rugged look for your property, this is surely the way to go.
One of the reasons that European mounts are so popular across the planet is that they’re far less demanding of your property’s space. While full body mounts remain the option that require the most space, even shoulder mounts still have the hide, neck, and other parts which will take up room in your property. The relatively minimalistic approach of a European mount means you’ll need much less room to display it adequately. If you have concerns about the amount of free space in your property, this could be a good option for you.
We’ve spoken before about the higher cost of a life sized taxidermy mount, and why that is prohibitive for some people – but the same can even be true of a shoulder mount. The work required to prepare and maintain a shoulder mount is higher than that of a European mount – which is a major reason why this continues to be a popular choice for taxidermy enthusiasts. If you’re working with a tighter budget, you might want to examine the possibility of a European mount for your property. Considering the considerable advantages available to those who pursue this course of action, it’s clearly a sensible choice.
As you’d expect from such an experienced and reputable taxidermy business, you can expect any European taxidermy mounts that you get from us to be of the highest standard. All of our mounts last for huge periods of time without any decay or deterioration, meaning the lifecycle value that you’re getting really is second to none. Of course, if any incidental deterioration takes place, we’re able to provide maintenance interventions as needed.
