Antler pendants. Scirmshaw 2 by BDSart Antler pendants. Scirmshaw 2 by BDSart
Hand carved out of real naturally shed elk antler.

Deer and elk shed their antlers antlers every year in late winter or early spring and begin to grow a new set of antlers in spring.
No animals were harmed.

Engraving technique - Scrimshaw
In short, the Scrimshaw technique is applied to the polished surface of the bone (in this case, elk horn) drawing with a needle through the points and scratches, and then all filled with paint (oil paint), the excess paint is removed, but stays at the points and scratches, this is how you get the image...

It's Kokopelli..

Kokopelli is the mystical motif that appears throughout the southwest and throughout the Americas. He is often depicted as a hump-back flute player. The kokopelli is thought to be a symbol of abundance and fertility.
