$3,684.53

About

These are two lovely taxidermy penguins originate from Antarctica in 1984. Both penguins are bending forward with their wings spread open and their beaks open as well. The Macaroni bird his fur is less spotted than the other one and its tale is more spread out than the Sauteur bird. Another big difference is the details on the head. Both penguins are characterized by egrets, which are yellow feathers above the eyes. But the Macaroni’s feathers are more positioned towards the back, the Sauteurs’ feathers are stand outwards of the head. The nickname of penguin macaroni would come from English sailors and would be related to the yellow egret of the animal. "Macaroni" was a term designating a fashion of the 17th century in England marked by a flamboyant or excessive ornamentation.
