Moose Antler Carvings- Lori This posts for you!

A week or so ago I was doing some blog hopping and stopped by Lori's blog I been Thinkin Bout Inkin Well it seems Lori Love's moose, no not the rich yummy dessert, but the big beast with huge antlers. I told her I'd share some pictures of my moose antler carving with you all. I did these many years ago. Sorry the photos are so bad but I had to scan them in  and as I mentioned I carved these many years ago, way before digital cameras.
This picture came out so washed out, wish you could see the details. This was a commission.
A couple of Mountain goats
A wood burned skull, another commission.

Two moose fighting. One of my favorites.
I've done a few more but haven't been able to find the photos yet!!!!
A really bad photo. I don't know if you can even make it out, but its a horse on the right and a wagon wheel and cow skull on the left. Another commission.

Electra said...

Oh, Lori is going to be soooo jealous! I especially love the skull, but they are all amazing!

Lori said...

HOLEEEE CRAP! These are freakin' spectacular fantastic! When you said carved, I wasn't sure what to expect, but I DIDN'T expect the whole scene to be carved out of the inside! I like the two fighting bull moose, that really is great. They're all great, but that one and the mountain goat scenes are my faves. Thanks for posting these Lynn, you made my day! And for the record, I like the food mousse too, surprising, I know...

The other evening we went for a walk and noticed that someone had hung a buck skull and antlers from a tree branch in the woods. It looked kind of creepy hanging there. Last night it was gone....
These are really oddities you have here!
