OK, I'll bite--- Why??

Is it a full body mount or a head mount?
I don't know much about elephants but it really does look good!!
how long did it take? and how many people worked on it? How big is your studio? (lot of questions) but I don't see that everyday!! again Great Job Doc

Thankfully it was just a head mount, we had 5 people working on it, three of us took turns shaving on it for about a week, after we tanned it, it was mounted in one weekend, then finished the rest in another weekend once it had dried. We have a really big shop, although this time of year it doesnt seem big enough. Thanks for the comments. You can check us out on the web at www.artistryoutwest.com or our tanning site is www.northidahotan.com
