North American Mounts: General

Whimsical Canoeing Raccoon


Part of our whimsical collection, Arden Creek's mount of a Raccoon paddling in a Birch Bark canoe is sure to liven up any space. Each animal is mounted here in the U.S.A. in our studio. The Birch Bark canoes are handcrafted by skilled local Native American artisans.

The Raccoon is a medium-sized mammal native to North America. Its grayish coat mostly consists of dense under fur which insulates it against cold weather. Two of the raccoon's most distinctive features are its extremely dexterous front paws and its facial mask, which are themes in the mythology of several Native American ethnic groups.

Raccoons are noted for their intelligence, with studies showing that they are able to remember the solution to tasks for up to three years.


Because this item is elegantly crafted from all natural materials, we want to be sure you know that there will always be a slight variation in size and color. Our artisans strive hard to limit these, but it is something we can not control.  


All of the products handmade at Arden Creek are custom creations by our skilled artisans. If you would like to have us build something similar to the one pictured, perhaps with your own custom design idea, simply call or email us to place your order. We love working with designers, architects, interior decorators and homeowners to give their space a touch of rustic elegance.
