Notice the nubs where the sprues have been removed. These will be ground down and disappear entirely during the chasing process.

The discolouration due to the welding process, where the moose skull was affixed to the base, will also be removed during the chasing process.

The join between the base post and the skull will appear to be seamless in the finished work.
