You are the man Mr Daniel! Can't wait to see you in a couple of weeks!
That is one hell of a puzzle. I would not know where to begin on a project of that magnitude. Please keep posting progress photos.
Thanks guys, but I won't pretend that I really know what I'm doing, lol
I was telling Mr. Ray today that even though this is the second elephant that he let me work on, I still couldn't do one on my own. It's a lot harder than it looks and I may be wrong but I think he has over 15 elephants under his belt! (sm, ped, half, and l/s)
Anyway, here's a few more pictures from today, hopefully he will be up and standing tomorrow
Totally amazing and i cant see where you have sewn all the bits together and thats before the filling stage!!!
RIP AM (rest in peace... as mount)
Well it took us just a little over 3 and a half days to mount it, but the hardest part was standing him up on his feet.
Here's the the elephant from yesterday all mounted, carded and lightly bagged.
Then we spent the morning making room around the elephant, and getting the forklift to work. Then the real work, figuring out how to lift and turn it without breaking the legs. But it worked out great with Wayne and Bones helping us, they are my fellow taxidermist coworkers
Anyway, thanks again for looking and I'll try to add some finished and painted pictures to this post later.
Friggin Ray LOVES that cat!!!! LOL Great job guys!
that is flat out amazing did ray do the sweet lion on the right it looks awesome.Man Daniel youre livin the dream
We ALL love Tiger! He's an awesome shop cat Thanks Mr. Mike, see you in a couple weeks.
Yup, he mounts all the lions. They are truly his specialty. And thanks for the compliments
I forgot to add that to satisfy my own curiosity, I measured the seams... There was over 125 feet of sewing on this elephant...
just flat out wow how many lions has he done so far
Yep, you, me and '**** you' Brown are going to have a blast!
&%%#^%$ If THAT is living the dream, I'll stay awake. LOL Thats crazy. Great job Daniel. Just glad it was you and not me.
Last time I asked, he said over 140... mind blowing I tell you, lol
I was always amazed at mounting a elephant... So how long does it need to dry before you can fininsh. And how much glue did it take......Im just amazed.
WOW! Can't imagine all that sewing!
That looks amazing! Lol I couldn't fit an elephant into my shop
Daniel are those artificial ears and if so why are they needed instead of the real ears?
