This is called the freyr pyxis it is done in a 10th century norse Mammen style out of Elk antler. The freyr on top is cast sterling silver.
That is amazing! I am drooling!
it was fun to make i need to make one similar to it soon! HMMM! will have to put Frigga or Freya on top this time not Freyr!
Wow! Love the carvings!
thanks much ,it was fun to carve.
I admire your bravery lol. I have a serious aversion to bones.. I won't even eat meat if there's a bone in it. Eww so gross! Can't touch bones or horns-- they gross me out!
its not even a thought with me really, its just another material to use in making stuff with.
Well you do a lovely job!
thank you and i hope that i can make some stuff in the future that does not creep you out ,and i just realized the pyxis is out of elk antler not from a meat bone per say hope that helps.
Beautiful work! I'm mightily impressed with your carving skill.
thank you very much ,your black work is also very very good.
things you create are simply amazing! I'm totally hypnotized @_@
