Major Percy Horace Gordon Powell-Cotton (1866-1940) established the Powell-Cotton museum at Quex Park in 1896 to house natural history specimens and cultural objects collected on his expeditions to Asia and Africa. He was a pioneer in the way he used dioramas to display his mounted specimens in their natural habitats.
I freaking love taxidermy but when it's mounted in dioramas like these I go crazy. The Powell-Cotton museum's dioramas are simply amazing and totally worth visiting if you ever get the chance.
