This tiny, African taxidermy shoulder mount has been posed with its head up and turned to its left. The animal's expression is relaxed but alert. The dark brown spots near the eyes compliment the rusty tans and mottled browns that make up the rest of its coat. This unique piece has earned our taxidermy quality rating of Excellent. As Dik-dik shoulder mounts are quite small, we have seen interior designers combine them in clusters to create unique and interesting decor.
