We don't come across these very often! The tsessebe is infrequently hunted. Consequently, taxidermy mounts are rarely found. This particular Tsessebe shoulder mount has been posed with its head up looking straight ahead. The animal’s fur is an interesting amalgamation of reds, grays and black with stunning patterns that shimmer in the light. The horns are characteristically swept back. The expression on the face is placid. This piece has been given our taxidermy quality rating of Premier due to its rarity and the quality and detail of the taxidermy. Add this to your African collection or start a collection of unique and interesting animals with this mount.
