Just a small quick carving. Carved from the butt of a blacktail deer antler mounted on a cedar base . The piece of antler is about as big around as your thumb. When I’m getting ready to start bigger projects,sometimes I just like doing something small just to get the juices flowing.

It looks great. I have done some work with antler on my lathe and hate the way it makes my shop smell for weeks.

You carvers just amaze me! This is so lifelike with the classic ‘stern’ expression.
