First I want to thank and congratulate everyone for so many great rarities here presented! cheers

I can't post my rarities at once but I'll present them sporadically, thus, I can add some interesting informations about them. Very Happy
This Mojö golden eagle, is a factory repaint from the bald eagle mold. It was developed to an exclusive customer as a special and limited edition of 20.000 pieces.
Though, the operation hasn't succeded and Mojö only made 5 of them. Sad 4 are in their offices and this one is with me as a fabulous gift from James Connolly (Mojö manager). pirat cheers
At a certain point, it was discussed its introduction in regular range but James decided that for Mojö quality standards, the little differences between both species, are enough to justify two different molds. So, the inclusion of this figure in regular range is remote and if ever Mojö makes a golden eagle, it will be a different model. Very Happy
It turns that figure in a rarity, moreover, it is very beautiful in my opinion, though, not my biggest rarity! bounce Wink

At first I thought you were calling us all dodos lol!

Yesterday I read an old article about Andalusian Horses in art and there was a paint quite similar to the left horse. I can't remember now the painter but it looks like made by Velazquez or Van Dyck

Yep, Dafydd there cuts a pretty Baroque figure.. My choice of colour on him likely aids with that impression somewhat as well; he does look a good bit less blubbery and more, eh, studly in sharper colours. If you ever come by the painting again, I'd be curious to see it!

Indy it is! I like him, too, but find myself having to debate whether I can justify holding on to such a pricey piece. He may turn up for sale, eventually. Wink  The Fraley fellow I have multiples of, all customized by now - but a walkaround of the unmarred original may still be viewed [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]; he's the 2nd from the top. The Arab above him isn't too-too common, either, if you're interested in inspecting more semi-rarities.  Cool

---

Also, such interesting rarities everyone has! Andreas' Jeol waterbuck, the Risso dolphin - and the famed Phat shoebill.. So stern, so silvery-sharp.. And Weaselfan's insects - so neat! And of course the super-scarce Mojö eagle.. That one is a true heavyweight as far as rarities go, certainly.

Show more of your scarcer ones, everyone! I, for one, would be most keen to see. Personal rarities would be interesting, too - they need not be pieces rare in sheer numbers, as the topic states.

There's a famous depiction of Napoleon Bonaparte and his horse that looks like that, but then you look at the actual stuffed animal (its in a museum somewhere) and it looks nothing like it. Laughing

Paige, I believe the painting of Napoleon in a horse you're referring is [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] painted by Jacques-Louis David.
It seems the grey Arabian here represented is called [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. Very Happy If you click on links, you'll see Wikipedia articles and you'll find that from Marengo we only have the skeleton. affraid
The Napoleon's stuffed horse that we can find at Musee d’Armee de l’Hotel des Invalides in Paris, is called Le Vizir and you can see a picture [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. There's also a painting of this horse [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] study
What a nice subject for a new thread! Laughing Of course I've found it googling and I may be wrong! Wink

Ha, maybe we should have a thread dedicated to historical animals. Laughing Thank you for the information, I love learning new things so this is interesting. And all you learn of Napoleon in general schooling was his reign and conquers. Rather boring usually. Rolling Eyes I'd much rather know about his horses. Wink

Very interesting seeing everyone's rare figures.

Here are a few of mine.
