The right moose antler is nearing completion. The design elements are now fully carved.

What remains is a once over to clean and sand the antler, smooth out the edges on the back of the antler that intersect with the design and then polish the whole.

The butt of the antler will be fitted to the skull and equipped with rare earth magnets to form a non-permanent, but solid, connection with the skull.

I am considering the idea of naming the sculpture "Gaia", after the theory of a living earth propounded by James Lovelock.
