Ran into a design problem with my latest polar bear carving. So I can't set the eyes just yet, but while I work out the problem, thought maybe you would like to see another of my carvings. I have been thinking about carving a moose for a while. Their head seems out of sync with other members of the deer family, with their large antlers, long snout and bulbous nose. Thought I needed a little practice before I attempted a full carving, so I carved just a moose head. The head was actually finished before I started the polar bear project. He has been hanging on the painting rack for about three weeks, so today I painted and mounted him. Hope you enjoy.
The whole carving including base is 6 1/2 L x 6 W x 4 1/2 D
