“Dragon Mother and Egg” carving done by talented carver on moose antler. Incredibly complex carving of dragon mother fighting another dragon in order to protect her precious egg seen at the bottom of the sculpture. Very large piece of moose antler with outstanding color, almost resembles mammoth ivory (which would be at least triple the price).
The material used for this fine carving is North American moose antler. This antler is collected from the forests of North America, all across Siberia to Scandinavia. The male of this species (Alces alces) grows and sheds a new pair of massive antlers every year. It is the largest of the deer family and its numbers are stable and thriving. Therefore, there are no restrictions on trade in this antler. It is a beautiful, solid, renewable carving material.
