We don't come across these very often! This Tsessebe shoulder mount has been posed with its head pointed turned slightly to its right and its ears perked up. The animal’s fur is an interesting amalgamation of reds, grays and black. This piece has been given our taxidermy quality rating of Fair due to a minor repair on the front of its neck and slight cracking around the bases of its horns (pictured).
