This article features the white-tailed deer sculpture of wildlife artist Tom Yacovella which was constructed out of antlers. He looked at each antler as a piece of puzzle. He began by crafting the buck's head and ears. The lower jaw was crafted from flat, palmated antlers, while antlers with less pronounced palmation formed the hooves. The tail and ears were created using antlers with fine tines. The sculpture was exhibited at the New York State Fair in Syracuse and was honored with the People's Choice Award in the wildlife exhibition.
