The sale features a single, extensive taxidermy collection from Boerne, Texas. The hunter traveled the world to acquire specimens and bring them back to Texas for taxidermy. Among the top lots of this section of the catalog is a ten-foot-tall Russian brown bear mount. The bear was taken in 1991 and is displayed standing on its hind legs. Other notable taxidermies in the sale include a full-body alligator (displayed with a faux human foot in its mouth), a giraffe shoulder mount, and various big cats such as leopards and mountain lions.
An oil on canvas painting by Teresa Elliot is also available. Spiritus II depicts a steer in vivid shades of orange and brown, gazing straight toward the viewer. The auction house notes that this work was prominently displayed in a San Antonio, Texas lawyer’s office for many years before heading to auction. Additional works of fine art to consider include a marsh scene by José Vives-Atsara, a portrait of three Native American women by Ford Ruthling, and assorted landscape works by G. Harvey.
