We believe that full mount are the best way to preserve African hunting memory. A full mount captures the species in it's full beauty and presence. We custom sculpt every full mount manikin to your exact specifications and it is anatomically correct to the size of the skin and the skull.
The full skin is taken and the animal is usually mounted on a floor plinth or, in the case of a leopard sometimes, on a branch that can be wall mounted or on a pedastal.
Full mounts are a must for some African trophies like the acts, that demand nothing less. Lion and Leopard are only really seen in their full glory as full mounts.
Half mounts are essentially the front half of the animal including the front legs. Mounted against a wall, the give the impression of an animal emerging from vegetation.
When space is limited, but you want the beauty and presence of your trophy, opt for a half mount as it has the best of both worlds.
Floor pedestals can vary from full mounts to shoulder mounts on a specially built pedestal according to your preference. It gives us great satisfaction to bring your vision to life.
Our hand crafted pedestals are made in-house from a variety of different types of wood. “You can either custom design your pedestal with regard to wood type, size, inlays and finish or you can choose from our selection of standard pedestals”

The European-style skull mount is a timeless tradition, and we are proud to offer a variety of different options to suit your taste. Skulls of animals are bleached and horns treated before being secured to a teak shield.
In a traditional European Mount, skull is cut and only the skull cap secured to a shield whilst a bleach on shield is the entire upper jaw of animal. For carnivores both upper and lower jaw can be mounted onto shield, either jaw closed or slightly open.
