For a long time I was into carving extinct and unusual animals. None captured me like the Irish Elk. I did this carving in a Cherry stump. It checked badly, but I still love it. It also had some damage on one of the Antlers, The trouble with making them so big. Just thought I would show it off since it now collects dust with many other carvings in my garage. I actually carved two and managed to sell the first one! I was very excited! This one is still my favorite though.
