PostSubject: My collection shelf by shelf   Thu May 19, 2011 5:33 pm

From now on, this will be the thread where I will post photos of my collection.

All the animals I have are arranged after 3 important criteria:
1) THEY MUST NOT TOUCH EACH OTHER
2) IF POSSIBLE, THEY HAVE TO BE FROM THE SAME GEOGRAPHICAL REGION
(this rule has recently been neglected due to the lack of space)
3) THEY NEVER REMAIN IN THE SAME POSITION
(each shelf took me at least 2 months of practice in order to use the limited space in the best way possible)

Whenever a new model comes home and is also worth staying in the spotlight (my 2m open vitrine), the 3 rules must be respected. If the animal isn't so important or it is extinct, it either goes to one of my other cabinets, which have no windows, or the Prehsitoric Panorama display. It is a deadly game for some critters, 'cause you never know when you'll get replaced. Wink

The first photos will be of my 100% African displays, 2 shelves at the base of the tall vitrine, staying in semi obscurity because of the little light reaching them:

shelf 1(Papo standing meerkat isn't visible,and also the female Schleich hippo)

It is a porcelain figurine bought from a boutique near the Sacre Coeur basilique in Paris.
I have 2 others, a mallard duck and an emperor penguin family. The other 2 are 5 times more realistic and some of the best replicas I have seen. I don't know the name of the brand, but I do have the original box they were packaged into and there is something written onto it. I also know they are handmade and I can tell you some more of the species the artist makes.

Beautiful collection Mihnea - I see you have the Bullyland Gnu, it's retired isn't it?

I also love the little Mandrill, he's really realistic, please post pictures of your other ones bounce They look familiar to me.

I discovered the make a couple of years ago, and since then have seen the figurines in gift shops - I would really like to have more too but I'm controlling myself!
It seems they have the figurines painted in France and Thailand - here's their website
