Dragon with Skull Carving
“Dragon with Skull Carving” created on North American moose antler by talented unknown carver. Excellent use of the natural shape of the antler. Amazing amount of detail. Note the body of the fearsome dragon, each scale delineated. Great price for such fine work.
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.
