Moose Antler Skull Cluster Carving
Moose antler skull cluster carving created by talented unknown artist. This one is simply amazing. There are at least a dozen skulls clustered together. Several of the skulls at the top have been polished, while the lower ones are slightly darker, creating a nice contrast.
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.
