Skull mounts, also referred to as European mounts, are a big part of taxidermy work.
European mounting is the process of displaying only the skull of the animal (horns or antlers included). Below are two examples of beautiful boho-style European mounts.
There are many different ways you can display the animal. In this post, I’m sharing 12 European mounting ideas for your home. Most of these mounting ideas can be purchased on Etsy.
