A FINE TAXIDERMY HIMALAYAN MONAL PHEASANT (LOPHOPHORUS IMPEJANUS) BY ROWLAND WARD (1848-1912)


England, circa 1870

The vibrantly coloured iridescent bird displayed running amongst rockwork and foliage, the case in bamboo.

 

H. 64 x W. 63 x D. 35 cm


Note:
One might think the bird is in an unnatural pose, but when observed closely, one can see the bird hopping over a rock and spreading his gem-like feathers to keep balance. This unique craftmanship can often only be attributed­ to the Ward taxidermists. ­
