Sculpture, Wall Sculpture, Wholesale
When art with strength and a bit of whimsy is called for, this faux taxidermy wall mount is a trophy winner. The Elk Head is a statement-maker in your foyer, entryway or hung above your indoor or outdoor fireplace mantle. It is a candidate for a special husband gift or fathers day gift.
We created this Elk head sculpture with reclaimed metal. We hand draw the pattern on the metal with soapstone and cut it with a hand held plasma cutter. The antlers start out as flat pieces of rusty metal. We hand hammer them into shape and grind them smooth. Finally we mount the head on a recycled corn planter disk.
The metal is sealed with a water-based enamel. This piece can be hung inside or out. Each head will have subtle variations. We cut them by hand and each piece of metal has slight color differences.
This head can easily be hung with a nail or screw. It?s weight is approximately 15 lbs
Care: Wipe clean with a damp cloth. If outdoors, you can maintain a shiny metal look [entirely optional] by applying a clear metal enamel, available in a spray can at your local hardware store.
