    Description: Pronghorn [American] Antelope diorama. Annual Report for 1911 said of the diorama: It consists of five animals, mounted by Taxidermist [Julius] Friesser, in a setting representing the arid elevated region of northern Mexico, with reproductions or actual specimens of cacti, agaves, ocotillos, and other desert plants, two birds, Northern Cardinal, Cardinalis cardinalis and a large background painted by Mr. [Charles] Corwin. This is the first flat background to be used for large groups, and it seems very successful especially for the a group of this size 9 x 14, having a large single plate glass front and skillfully adapted foreground, producing an effect of distance and atmosphere that is most realistic.
