A Set of Large Marco Polo Argali (Ovis ammon polli) Horns from the Himalayas. Mounted on a shield. The species of argali sheep named after Marco Polo. Guarenteed All Natural Bone And Horn . There are no repairs or alterations of any kind. This specimen was not hunted. Natural kill most probably by their natural predator the Snow Leopard. I have had it professionally cleaned and treated by a licensed taxidermist. This fine Mountain sheep was first reported to western science by Marco Polo approximately 700 years ago and as a result carries his name. It also carries perhaps natures finest horns which are deeply wrinkled.
