Outstanding Carved Iguana
‘Outstanding Carved Iguana’ carved by unknown artist on North American Moose Antler. Highly detailed carving. Each sharp little tooth in the open mouth is detailed as well as the spines along the back and the detail in the feet. Very fine work. See the photos.
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.
