  1. I'm not a fan of animal trophies but I must confess the rams head is stunning!

  2. We had a similar discussion when we found it. He loved it right away since it reminded him of the trophies his dad would return home with from the hunt. But the idea of a ram's head in the apartment made me slightly uncomfortable, although I couldn't deny its beauty. And I must confess, there is an unexpected warmth and peacefulness about this particular find.
