“This flower was one I just dreamed up from my imagination but it reminds me of an orchid in shape. This piece was tricky to carve as the stem and leaf is one piece of caribou antler so there is always a risk of it breaking when carved so thin. The petals are carved from whalebone which is also always difficult to carve thin as the porous texture has a tendency to crumble. The whisker-like stamens in the flower are hairs that I removed off strips of baleen. This was a fun piece to make.”
