Simon ‘the stuffa’ Wilson is arguably the most well known taxidermist in the UK at the moment, having produced the famous ‘Floating Giraffe’ that recently sold in the Aynhoe Park sale for a record breaking £100,000. He also produced the white horse Madrono belonging to Luisa Zissman which recently featured in the press. Simon sources animals that have died from natural causes from zoos and farms, and many of his pieces have appeared on screen in television and film in recent years.
