Here are some examples of museum mounts I made to hold objects and models for Metropolitan Museum of Art and The American Museum of Natural History
American Museum of Natural History: Ocean Life Hall Mounts
Some of the many mounts I made for models in Hall of Ocean Life at the American Natural History Museum.
Most of these mounts are designed to be unobtrusive as well as accommodate tilting the model in both horizontal and vertical orientation so the fish models could school in a realistic manner. All of them are locked securely in place and have been for over 10 years.
The octopus is a wax model made in the 1930s. It is very fragile and in an exposed area. The solution I devised was that each arm would be supported from underneath with custom brass arms that could set screwed to the center mount. Off of the brass arms were more set screwed arms that clasp the model without damaging it.
