Footnotes

  • Van Ingen & Van Ingen of Mysore (1900-1998) were Indian taxidermists located in Mysore, South India, best known for their tiger and leopard taxidermy mounts now scattered throughout the world in the form of head mounts, full mounts, flat animal rugs, and rug mounts with heads attached.
    The Van Ingens served the highest if international nobility as well as the maharajas of India, perserving their 'shikar' hunting trophies in the most lifelike poses and in the utmost beauty, uncomparable to any other taxidermists in the world.
