Art of the Hunt
Taxidermy captures eyes, imagination at Dallas Safari Club expo
DALLAS — This ain’t your great-grandpa’s old cotton-and-plaster stuffed deer head. Today’s taxidermy is high art.
And there’s no finer gallery than the Dallas Safari Club convention and expo. The Jan. 9-12, 2014, event features world-class taxidermy exhibits showcasing game species from Africa to Alaska.
Every taxidermist strives for realism and detailed expression of creativity — even up close.
