Pheasant (Phasianus colchicus)

The bird was mounted standing on one leg and scratching its head with one eye showing a nictitating membrane that often flashes across the eye when a bird is preening.

Derek Frampton won the UK bird taxidermy competition with this bird by a clear mile in 1981.  It is a major historical mount in the world of taxidermy and definitely one of the most groundbreaking pieces of taxidermy of the time.

It is in a sizeable case, but it can be easily removed or a smaller case made without the materials surrounding the inner base.

Case Dimensions:
Length 103cm
Depth 55.5cm
Height 58.6cm

Inner Base Dimensions:
Length 70cm
Depth 40cm
Height 33cm
