I thought this is an artists website. Why you buy other REAL taxidermy artists' artworks, marked up, and reselling it for your own greedy profit?? Are you trying to turn this artists website into another merchants' website????    Please correct me what I am saying is wrong. My grand father was a great taxidermists. He never sold any taxidermy works, which he did not skinned from the real dead animals.

What we do here:

1. We provide high quality references for other artists and taxidermists
2. We provide references for identifying skulls, pelts and other items.
3. We buy things, restore them if neccessary and sell some of that, yes.
4. We put A LOT of effort in our gallery. You would have known that if you would have looked that up at first, before talking nonsense.
5. We produce a lot of things on our own. Which means: skinning, preserving, etc. (and we are selling things we made)
6. We buy things, identify them and show others what it really is - so that the next person getting something he/she knows what it is. To stop this massive flood of wrong labeled things.
7. We compare things which never had been compared before.

In general: We share things and experiences with other people around the world. We buy from them (A LOT of people are selling their stuff), trade with them and offer our services to search for the items they always wanted.
This is a community and we are part of it. Another thing you would have known if you would have tried to.

Yes, I correct you: What you say is wrong. And beside that you are crossing a border of simpel critism to insult.
We are not selling anything for our own greedy profit or trying to turn this website into a nother merchants website.
You should probably try to know what you are talking about before you are talking about it.

So what did you do?
You talked without knowing anything about us.

LOL

AS YOU ADMITTED, YOU SELL THINGS, WHICH OTHER TAXIDERMIST CREATED.

HERE IS THE SIMPLE QUESTION FOR YOUR SIMPLE BRAIN.

I HAVE A LARGE COLLECTIONS OF FINE ART, WHICH I BOUGHT AT MANY ART AUCTIONS INTERNATIONALLY. I HAVE DALI, PICASSO, MIRO, KOONS, KOSTABI, ETC. HOW ABOUT I TAKE PHOTOS OF THEM AND POIST THEM IN MY PAGE, MADE GOOD DESCRIPTIONS (YES, I HAVE MANY PAGES OF AUTHENTIFICATIONS AND INFO, FO SELLING AND STUDYING THEM) FOR EACH, AND START SELLING THEM FOR PROFIT JUST LIKE WHAT YOU DO. DO YOU SUPPORT ME?

this IS AN INTELLIGENT DISCUSSION MATTER. YOU HAVE RESPONDED ME WITH EMOTIONAL SMALL MINDED MATTER. YOU SEEMS NO IDEA WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT REGARDING TEH NATURE OF ART WEBSITE AND MERCHANT'S WEBSITE.

IS THAT YOUR WILL AND ACTIONS TO DRAGGING DOWN THIS ART WEBSITE INTO MARE MERCHANT SELLING WEBSITE FOR YOUR OWN PERSONAL FINALCIAL GAIN???

WHAT YOU SAYING IS NOTHING BUT AN INSULT FOR SERIOUS ARTISTS AND THIS ART WEBSITE. YOU ARE DISGRACE AND DISGUSTING. NEVER EVEN CONTACT ME AGAIN.

Yes, I support you with selling the works of other artists.
I am pretty sure that you bought them from other people.
Wait? How funny... for sure not the artists themselves!
So someone sold them to you, just for profit.

Stop it with that ridiculous way of writing and trying to be the intelligent one.
As I said: You should judge nothing you don't know.

I wrote you an explanation which you don't seem to understand.
You keep attacking me in that really childish way.
It looks like you didn't even read what I wrote.

We also "produce" some by ourselves, e.g. bird skins or skulls. We do not have the skills to do "real" taxidermy, sadly.
But you are right, we also buy a lot. But actually not for reselling, maybe you noticed that our "sale section" is pretty small, not even one side. Our collection is 22 sides. We upload pictures of our collection as art references for artist, and they are used a lot for drawing or photo manipulation ;) That's why we here.

Thank you for your explanations.

But you still did not answer my concerns. Is this supposed to be an artists website? It seems your interest is selling merchandises came from other sellers, and doing everything to improve your sales.

My grandfather only sold taxidermy artworks, which he mounted by himself. NOT BUYING AND SELLING OTHER'S TAXIDERMY MERCHANTS. This is why I am puzzled and even upset seeing your business practice here in this art website. I feel like you are taking advantages of taxidermy and other taxidermy artists. Am I feeling wrong? 

I am not mad at you. I feel something very wrong when I see your website, personally.

But I told you. We collect taxidermy. Sometimes there are items we don't want or need anymore. We indeed sell these items, since here are many other collectors who are interested. Sometimes we also sell items we produced by ourselves. And if someone is searching for something in particular, we try to help him getting what he wants. But it's not our main intention to sell stuff. We don't simply buy taxidermy to sell it ;) We love taxidermy and we want to provide references and to communicate with other collectors/taxidermists, this is what this website is for. ;)

I have collected many artist's artworks from auctions for man years. IF I START POSTING THOSE ARTWORKS DONE BY OTHERS, AND START SELLING THEM FOR PROFIT ON THIS ART WEBSITE, THEN I AM JUST DOING TEH EXACT SAME THINGS AS YOUK DO.  I LOVE ART BUT "SOMETIMES THERE ARE ITEMS WE DO NOT WANT OR NEED ANYMORE". LOL  HOW REDICUROUS IT SOUNDS.

I still feel what you are doing is wrong, despite how long have you been doing, AND despite whatever other things you are doing. I feel what you are doing is dragging down the art website into merchant selling website. you should be shame of what you are doing and what you are trying to justify your wrong acts. I feel you should not in the business of taxidermy at all. I want you stop doing wrong things here.   

It became clear that you do not have any answers for me. so, I just sent this matter to DA to decide what is allowed and what is not allowed in this so call ART WEBSITE.
