“Buck Up” Sculptures by Gordon Chandler
In 1925 ,the U.S. deer population was estimated at less than 300,000. Today, it exceeds 30 million! Makes me want to order venision.
Deer (the category incidently includes caribou, moose, and the like) are also the only creatures with antlers. Their super sensitive racks are actually the fastest growing living tissue on earth. For whatever reason, our Creator gave these animals a superdose of prenatal vitamins; and let it rip.
They also have dichromatic vision which means they don’t see the color red or its dirivatives. Seems unfair.
Artist Gordon Chandler drums up some fantastic creations including kimonos and mounted bucks.
