Mother Crow is named for the Hopi kachina doll you see in the body of this moose antler. I have this kachina in my collection. The Hopi woman who made the kachina named it "Mother Crow".
The designs and patterns you see on the antler body come from native American architecture as it relates to their pueblos, rugs, pottery, silver, textiles, crafts and daily life.
This antler has been sculpted, filed, sanded and buffed, engraved and painted with an alkyd enamel and has over 120 hours of work in it.
I entered Mother Crow in The 2007 Nampa (Idaho) Artists Guild Juried Art show in October. Mother won Gold.
The base is purpleheart and oak laminated together. It is 44.5" high by 19" wide.
