A Visit to Lux Estate Liquidation

Cobra and mongoose in taxidermy

You never know what you'll find at Lux Estate Liquidation. I was drawn to something strangely wonderful.

Cobra and mongoose in taxidermy reminds me of the children’s classic: Rikki-Tikki-Tavi from The Jungle Book. Still in print after 100 years, Rikki-Tikki-Tavi is Rudyard Kipling's story of post-colonial Indian society, illustrated in the struggle between the mongoose and the cobra.

See a video of the two creatures in action:
