STANDING CARVED CARIBOU SHOVEL WITH BEAR
Caribou antler carving by Neil and Shari Medley of Unique Antler Designs
The whole piece is carved from one piece of antler. The inside white part of the carving is what the inside of the antler looks like. This unique caribou antler carving measures approximately 8.5" wide x 10.5" tall x 3.5" deep (see Sharpie marker for size reference)
Neil and Shari Medley met in Alaska over 30 years ago in a small fishing town in Prince William Sound. Since then they have spent countless hours in the wild observing wildlife, hunting shed antler and creating art from the natural antler resource that nature provides. Shari was taught the art of antler carving by her father, a master carver in Anchorage, Alaska, and has been carving antler for 20 years. This type of carving is done with a variety of tools similar to dental tools and drills. For more than 15 years, Neil has created lighting and furniture from moose, deer, elk and caribou antler.
