Moose Antler Carving Reptile Egg
Moose antler carving reptile egg created by very talented unknown carver. Great work on this one with the egg highly polished and the emerging reptile carved with outstanding detail. Check out the incredible detail in the photos. Great value for this amount of work, by the way.
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.
