I vaguely remember another one over the porch as you walk in – I thought you were talking about it. I’ll just have to go back!

There was also a plaster casting of the porcupine on display in one of the main rooms. I don’t know if it’s still there. I don’t remember the story behind it… and I didn’t take a photo of it.
