A unique addition to Dolan's ever-expanding repertoire of faux taxidermy heads, this Greater Kudu original faux taxidermy sculpture is a striking representation of a client's most beloved friends from her storied career as a zookeeper.

Dolan jumped at the opportunity to bring this special fellow - Darby - to life, working in close collaboration with the client to ensure the anatomical details (check out those hand-crafted, twisting horns!) were correct and that the color palette - selected to complement the home's existing decor, including specific tones pulled from a statement area rug - was a precise fit.

The result: a real character commemorated in mixed media, with ample opportunity to tell stories about the piece's origin and the real Kudu himself, for generations.
