Red Deer Stag

 This larger than life red deer was created as one of a pair commissioned for a large garden where the viewing distance meant that a standard size deer would tend to merge into the surrounding greenery. It stands 2m 30cm high and weighs so much that I couldn't move it to enable me to take a decent photograph. Delivering this pair will have to wait until help is at hand in a week or two's time.

This is one of the biggest roosters that I have made, but it still uses more or less the same components as the smaller versions. The key was to start with the biggest axehead possible which is now a pretty rare item in this area! Coupled with a bigger than average set of forks for the legs and a lot of extra parts in the tail including an antique straw cutter this sculpture now resides on my own pool terrace, but for how long is anyone's guess.
