    This is the old boar, young  boar and deer. 
    the upper part of the package is made of rabbit skin. 
    all stuck to the bone glue on wood form.

    Hey there!

    I like them very much, as all of your work, very nice.

    I´d like to build at least one in the future, does anyone have pictures of the wooden form?
    Personally I´d try to bend thin wood onto a frame rather than working out of massive to avoid weight and costs, but I do not know yet.

    Yes, thank you very much for the pictures of the wooden form.

    Glueing pieces together and additional sanding it round should be a very good solution.
