Mars is buck from Ohio. This deer was an unfortunate victim of a car accident. This is my favorite way to acquire skulls as a way to "recycle" an animal that would otherwise be entirely wasted and left to decay. By taking time, attention to detail, and pride in the creation process, I feel that it is a way to make the animal live on, be cherished, and honored. 


Mars has been decorated with reds, browns, and ochres. Ox bone beads and domestic turkey feathers have been added to an additional string ornament that can either be wrapped and clasped around the antler, attached on a small wire ring in the bottom of the skull, or removed.


This piece is protected and sealed with a UV-protective varnish that gives the skull a glossy finish, bringing out the natural, skeletal colors and variations, and to make the colors pop. This piece may be hung with a small wall bracket that hooks into the back of the skull, shown in the item photo above. This is INCLUDED in the order and will ship with the skull.
