Taxidermy

The art of taxidermy started about 4000 years ago, because Man has always been passionate about preserving the bodies and part of the animals that surround him.

Modern taxidermy is a high-level artistic expression, from simple bones to the most beautiful animal perfectly prepared and with full guarantee of remaining for many years.

One of a Kind Shop is specialized in this area and over time we will offer a wide variety of pieces.

All of them will be only offered under the legal conditions of the market, which assures that all species subject to some specific CITES appendix will be sold with its own CITES certificate.
