    well i didnt know where else to put this...

    well ive been working on this peice for around 3 years now. its an annoying hobby of mine to carve fish out of antler with dremel tools (makes me smell like burning bodies but oh well). up until now all the peices ive done have been completely out of deer antler hence they have never been over 10 inches in size. however about 4 years ago i aquired some moose antler and thus i was able to create on the large scale. this peice is about 3 feet tall and 2 feet in diameter. the sailfish is about 1.5 feet long and the dolphin fish are about 3-5 inches. the flying fish are only about 1 inch long. anyway if anyone has ever seen a picture of the weed lines offshore then they know whats going on in this piece. just thought id share it with everyone before i sold it.
