I happened upon a hiding fawn once years ago. Have never forgotten how beautiful it was. I had a camera, took some shots, made this from those photos. I think the wood is lace wood.

Thats absolutely stunning! I have read a few articles about Japanese Netsuke and your beautiful fawn is very similar to those. We also live in the mountains and have local deer that hang out in our yard as its pretty secluded, so Im a bit of an animal freak. I have tried my hand at carving, so I appreciate the skill. Now I have to check out all your other posts…..

-- Im so impressed with what people can do, and I wonder how they do it. Thats what keeps me doing it.

This is really pretty, but to be honest, at a quick glance, i thought this was a thanksgiving turkey.

Fawn. It’s a fawn- as in a baby deer.

A faun is a goat-like creature of myth and ye olde fairie tail- like Mr. Tumnus in Chronicles of Narnia.

Nice carving though!

GREAT JOB!

I grew up in NW North Dakota on the farm and almost every spring we would find some.

Just left them be!

Although in late fall the deer would sometimes play & trample in our flax swaths—making them, harder to combine!

You never stop to amaze me when I see your work.
So impressed with the and ability you have, to get all this out of a piece of wood.
Nice to hear from you, thanks.
