Are you on the hunt for the perfect animal head or set of antlers? Animal prints and skins are always in, but apparently animal heads are the accessory de jour. If you find the idea of a real animal head disturbing, there are many faux versions that are just as chic. Whether real or fake, animal heads add a rustic exotic sensibility to any interior. Here are a few alluring images for inspiration...
