This piebald white tail buck died of natural causes, it is mounted on a pine root system and finished with Seal A Cell. It is very heavy and full of pitch.

Tim & Candy,

That base is absolutely perfect for the buck . . . but I could do without the snake! Yikes! What an incredible work of art! The third photo really puts the piece in perspective and shows the majesty of your work.

We don’t get to see piebalds every day. It’s wonderful that it could be preserved. Thanks for sharing.

Yes the snake is real, it’s a 6’ rattlesnake killed on a ranch in Texas, the piebald came from the same ranch. This project was a lot of fun and we were just as thrilled when our client sent pictures with the buck and snake on the pedestal. We don’t get a chance to see the project completed for quite some time after we ship the pedestals, so it is a true pleasure when our customers will send us the pictures with their trophies on the pedestals. We are blessed to do be able to do what we do…..

Wonderful piece! I really love the shape of the pine root.
