At Kanati Studios, we individually sculpt and imaginatively design each one of your big game trophies into a unique taxidermy custom mount. We create an artful and dramatic presentation of the animal, while placing an extra emphasis on the overall custom taxidermy composition. When you use our custom taxidermy services, you will know that extreme care is being taken with your wildlife hunting trophy. This will ensure that your custom mount displays the natural strength and beauty of the animal.
The difference is in the details. All of our pieces have incredibly meticulous detail, whether it is the bulging muscles of a leaping cougar or the hairline veining on a kudu’s face. Our hi-end taxidermists put an extreme amount of time into making sure the details of your custom trophy mount are recreated properly. Even the subtle expressions such as rotation of the eyes and posture of the ears are also carefully crafted for a unique taxidermy design and final product.
Our taxidermy studio uses the latest tanning technology and only the best materials for our wildlife taxidermy designs and mounts. While most times we start with a generic or commercial form, it is only the beginning. We resize and re-sculpt that form to fit your animal, the correct pose, and your personal style. Muscle detail is added, veins, and eye expressions are sculpted into the trophy mount as well. We utilize an extensive reference library to insure the anatomy, posture, and expressions on our big game hunting trophies are all cohesive with the specie.
It is a very time consuming process of sculpting, fitting, and sculpting again until we get it just right; however, it is one we enjoy doing, and do well. This unique taxidermy process is one of the most vital aspects of what we do and the difference is very evident in our finished work. Upon request, we can also e-mail photos of your project at this stage so the pose of your custom mount can be fine-tuned to your specifications. The tanned animal skin is then fit on and all the fine details put in place.
We take pride in ensuring that your custom trophy mount will withstand the test of time. This is why every piece that leaves our studio is “showroom ready” and guaranteed for life. For a free estimate on our custom taxidermy services contact us today!
