About Animal Skulls
Taxidermy skulls have been derived from animal bodies and then appropriately treated and preserved for decorative, scientific or artistic use. Skulls can range from birds, which also include their beaks, to rams and other horned animals, providing an impressive and varied shapes. Whilst most are originals, replicas can also be found.
Animal skulls can be found presented in a variety of ways, each of which will have an impact on how they can be used. Some items, for example a small skull collection, might be ready for decorative use having already been presented in a glass case. This can be useful for those looking for an item that is immediately ready to be put out. It also means the owner does not need to worry about maintenance or ongoing care of the items, which is a consideration as they are, of course, made from organic matter. Cased items, which might be delicate or have sharp elements, also have an advantage in terms of safety in homes with small children.
Again, useful for decoration, there are wood mounted pieces such as skulls or horned skulls. These can add a ?hunting lodge look? to your space whilst also serving the purpose of keeping the sharp items out of reach.
Standalone pieces are those that have not been mounted or presented within cases. These are the item choice for those looking to perhaps work further with the taxidermy items for art or science because they have not been tampered with (unless stated). These may require ongoing maintenance in order to keep them in good condition.
