Wool Faux Taxidermy by Bella McBride from McBride House

 My new obsession... wool faux taxidermy!
A great way for animal lovers to display a head mount without hurting the real thing.
And this one is even better as it's slightly larger than life size!
Even though Mr. Fox hardly weighs a thing, he is approx. 23 cm (9 inches) from the back of the piece to the tip of his nose.  The frame is 31.5 cm (12.25 inches) tall by 26.5 cm (10.5 inches) wide.
AND.... The Hare!
Aren't they cute together?
As you can see, The Hare is much bigger than real life!
He has horse hair whiskers...
Black glass eyes....
And is mounted, as is Mr Fox, in a vintage oak (I think it's oak) frame.  You can see both of them and many more of my sculptures here!
