Mountain Goat

Mountain Goat


These mountain goats feature long white woolly fur, black spiky horns, and beautiful detail work and painting on the carved toes and head. They are sold individually.

All my creatures are handcrafted in my Asheville, NC studio using porcelain, castable stone and imported woven fur from Steiff-Schulte in Germany.

Size: 5 inches


Breed Description
The mountain goat (Oreamnos americanus), also known as the Rocky Mountain goat, is a large-hoofed mammal found only in North America. Despite its vernacular name, it is not a member of Capra, the genus that includes the wild goat, Capra aegagrus, from which the domestic goat is derived. A subalpine to alpine species, it is a sure-footed climber commonly seen on cliffs and ice. --info via Wikipedia

All of the positions look good in any setting and especially at eye level, but the grazing is particularly awesome on a high shelf looking down on you.
