John Rasmussen Animal Pins
Wildlife Artist, John Rasmussen, was raised in Idaho near famous Yellowstone Park. He spent long hours studying the wildlife of the area and reproducing their beautiful forms in bone, wood, ivory, soft stone, and other natural materials. Since elk and deer shed their antlers and grow a new set each year, this source of material for carving seemed a natural. The end result is the combination of the handiwork of nature with the interpretation and craftsmanship of the artist. Each piece is uniquely one of a kind.
These are wearable art pieces, reproductions of an exquisitely detailed carving by John in the base of an antler left in the wild. Though reproduced here in "cast antler", each piece is individually hand painted so is an original in its own right. You can rightfully be proud to own any of these unique pieces and with reasonable care, they will give you years of enjoyment and service.
