WHAT IS ANTLER?

Antler is a hornlike, bony growth, usually branched, that grows in pairs on the head of a deer, moose, elk, caribou, or other members of the deer family. Antlers occur on the heads of male deer and on some related species of either sex. Because of antler's rich brown colors and ease of carving, it is a preferred medium of many carvers. Antlers are a renewable resource, as they are shed each year and grow more branches each season as the animal ages.

What is an Animal Fetish?
