This Nyala has been mounted from the shoulder up. It has large, beautiful horns. Its coat is a plethora of different shades of brown. These light and dark browns are accented by the lighter coloration of the animal’s face and the symmetrical splotches of white that define the piece. Posed with his hear turned slightly to his left, this piece represents a fantastic value in nicely-done African taxidermy. Due to some very minor signs of age (hardly visible in photos), we have given this mount our rating of Nice.
