I totally missed out on the opportunity to get my chess-master father the most unique Christmas gift ever this year.
Can you imagine his delight on Christmas morning if he would have opened a wrapped chess set made completely of taxidermied mice?
From the Etsy (where else?) page of this one-of-a-kind item:
This delightfully deceased taxidermy chess set is sure to get peoples attention. Every mouse was a unique creature in life, making each piece of this set a one of kind creation. Hand stuffed by me, but created by the guy upstairs (or whoever you believe created mice).
The set includes 16 light colored mice and 16 dark mice, in various sizes, pawns being the smallest. Set comes complete with wooden hand painted chess board, and storage case (not pictured)
All specimens were acquired from a captive breeding facility that distributes frozen rodents for reptile feeding, so don’t feel sad if these little guys were not battling it out on the chess board they would be deep in the belly of a snake.
