MASAI GALLERY: THE TAXIDERMY SPECIALIST
Our company has established itself as an expert in the art of taxidermied animals.
Our main activities are:
- mounting taxidermy animals and birds from all five continents
- producing polyester moulds of animals and fish
- scientific reproduction of extinct species
- scientific reconstitution of prehistoric humans
The main characteristic of the work we carry out is the customisation. Each item that is exhibited in our showroom and in the private taxidermy collection is unique.
Our objective is to give animals that have died of natural causes a new lease of life by reproducing and restoring their most beautiful expressions.
Taxidermied animals is for us the art of mounting animals which requires an in-depth knowledge of the natural anatomy of each species and demands highly detailed and precise procedures when creating the poses of the animals as well as their visual expressions. These looks and poses must translate the emotions that customers are looking for. The selection of skins and the tanning process determine the quality of the work that we offer.
We also have a surprising range of polyester reproductions of animals and fishes. These moulds are made by craftspeople who are able turn to the very latest technology for inspiration and reproduce the very tiniest details of the original texture of the authentic animal skin. These reproductions can be used as decorative items for indoor or outdoor spaces.
We work in a wide and varied range of areas. Our greatest wish is to work with people from different market segments: decorators, designers, architects, set designers, photographers, etc. Moreover, we have a strong experience of taxidermy for museums and we appreciate to work with curators of museums of natural history and teaching institutions.
We are the embodiment of a family-run crafts business with Belgian expertise that enjoys international renown.
We receive clients in our showroom by appointment only.
All taxidermy animals for sale or rent are accompanied by the documents required by the Washington Convention (CITES certificate).
Our guiding principle is to respect nature, the animals and international regulations governing the protection of species.
