Custom Bird Dome
Victorian parlors were not complete without a beautiful glass dome filled with some exotic collection. This fascination with preserving a displaying artifacts from the natural world is not lost to some people even today. Award-winning bird taxidermist Allis Markham strives to bring back parlor art, but with a high level of biological accuracy, gained from her work at the Natural History Museum.
