Custom Bird Dome
Prices start at $2,600.00
Victorian parlors were not complete without a beautiful glass dome filled with some exotic collections. This fascination with preserving and 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.

Pictured is an example of Allis' previous work, but you can work with her to create a custom piece of your own. We have a varied collection of exotic specimens from South American, Africa & Australia. All of these specimens were domestically raised and passed on from natural causes at aviaries.
- Green Turaco
- Chestnut Mandibled Tucan
- Red-Winged Starling
- Green Aracari
- Beared Barbet
- Red-Legged Honeycreeper
- Brazilian Cardinal
Each dome can also include environmental details like native plant-life replicas, custom ground-cover, and real native insects (also ethically collected) that will make your dome a true diorama. Special requests can also be easily made should you want to add some special touches or specific items.
Pricing will depend on the details of the piece and specimens used. Our minimum charge is $2600 not including the cost of the dome; client may source their own dome. Expect to spend $5500 for a larger, multi-bird or a more detailed piece.
Expect about a 5 month lead time depending on species availability and studio schedule. Shipping cost charged to client and will be coordinated with Prey Taxidermy.
