this carving developed first by carving the bear head from elk antler. Once it was done,I was wishing I had a bigger piece of antler to make a body.When the idea came to attach wood and antler,I new I was on to something new and fun. I have done quite a few different ones now. The body of the bear and the board on the back are one piece of red cedar driftwood and the fish, moon and bear head are elk antler.

I looked up all your carving, Steve. They all look great! I only wish I were that prolific! I’m a carver, but a slow one.
