    I am completely in awe! This is fantastic work. How much does a piece like that sell for, if you don't mind my asking?

    I made another copy (2nd) of "The Bear and Russian Laika" (Misha and Laya - that's how I call it in Russian:)), downloaded a short slide show but failed to post it here (?), so here is a link

    I myself like this composition extremely, would never get tired of making it over and over again adding some new elements:)

    Light Rail Coyote,
    thanks for your words!
    No, I don't mind being asked.:) By the way I'd better give a link of a big Russian online art resource where my works are displayed with the prices
    http://www.artonline.ru/artist_gallery/dmitrygor
    Of 'cos they can vary and be lower or higher depending on the quality of a moose antler,the composition, extra sculptures, extra details used etc.

    Dear everyone,

    I want to share the photos of another piece of moose antler carving I finished the other day.

    That was done using a photo as a basis for the composition.
    It is stylized to some extend but that was actually the purpose:)

    Looking forward to your comments!!!

    Here is another design I am working at now.
    Then the figures will be partially made from this moose antler and partially from wood:) and they should seem as if jumping from the moose antler...

    Stacey,
    I buy antlers for carvings from local hunters. Sometimes people who order a carving provide the moose antlers themselves, mostly they are into hunting too.

    gorgeous work. it's interesting to see that you make maquettes first before you carve, good process.
     
  14. Your work is INSANE Dmitry! I don't think I've ever seen such beautiful moose carvings. Thank you for taking the time to post and show how you do it ;)

    Kinetic,
    maquettes can't be done without when such movements are to be shown:) you can change the animals' posture in your hand till the needed one is found, it's a real pleasure!:)
