    You need to work on your knowledge skills, whoever owns this house has probably bought it from a antique taxidermy dealer, And most Of These donate 5-10% Of the money they earn to charities like WWF. N00B

    Yuck. Too much money and not enough heart.

    ????????? Different from mine, so inconvenient? We are talking design and a possible poor choice, on a design site, and craig... brings in a very pointed political statement with no design context.

    Rug is perfect. A real man's room. The most striking design flaw of this depicted space at the time of this comment is that the flatscreen is just too puny! Puny, puny, puny! The television should be re-dimentialized. The bookshelves to the left and to the right of the depicted screen need to go, in order to accommodate the larger width television. The vertical height needs to be altered enough to reflect the new larger screen size and the animal statue should remain above it. I love this room. I also would prefer a REAL fireplace, thank you.

    Is it just me, or does the stairway seem a bit shy on the headroom side of things? Looks like anyone taller than 5' would hit their heads on the section above! And the double doors look like standard 6'-8" high doors. How can that meet code or be comfortable or practical for use?

    The tiger rug could be 60 years old & it's likely it was killed way before they were endangered. The marksman is likely "expired" as well. My expertise? Have one almost identical to that one and was handed down 3 generations.

    I agree, disturbing
  • gilbert1958
    There must be animal activist, who finds this disturbing, however this is a good design. I am also noting that the rug may not be real, if so, it's unfortunate, live on and enjoy.

    No species, plants, or organic matter was put on the Earth by anyone, they slowly evolved each equal to the other from gas, oceanic seas, mud and chemical reactions, just the same has modern homes evolved from caves to mud huts then great palaces and cities. The earlier commentator who claims animals have no rights, and tiger being killed for their skin to be turned into a fireside rug was okay by him, is totally wrong.
  • Bryan Cera
    Just to note - if humans keep killing beautiful animals for the fur, ivory, skin....etc.


    And we're almost there now...7,000,000,000+ many are left of lions, tigers, bears, elephants, whale....and on...

    This us not your house, nor your money used to build it. The owner has every right to decorate it to their tastes. How do you know this tiger was not shot legally? How do you know that it did not die of old age? You don't. This is not a place to display your personal political feelings.

    It could also have been inherited from an older relation who took the trophy a generation ago when tigers were not so scarce. It might come from a legal source like an estate auction. It could possibly be a very realistic fake - I've seen some incredibly accurate looking fakes out there. They often take a cow hide or other common hide, bleach it and then dye it to match the patterning of the animal they wish to fake, then add whatever accessories like claws, fangs, or whatever to make it seem real. Taxidermy gaffs to fool people have been around long before the Jackelope was invented.
