The popularity of replica animal heads is ever growing: Oregon based fabric artist Rachel Denny has a new addition to her one-of-a-kind buck head sculptures. The majestic “Zipper Buck” (don't bucks have antlers) is the third example of her sculptures in this style shown on the Vitamin D(esign) website; the other two have already been sold. The elegant looking Buck is hand knit with cable stitch accents and a zipper neck detail. Measuring 29” high, 15” wide and 20” deep the stately deer would indeed, as Vitamin D(esign) notes, “look beautiful above a fireplace or over a bed,” however, I find him kind of cuddly and could actually see it in a child's room. Rachel will also make custom orders of bucks or does upon request. Stats for Knitted Taxidermy Trending: Older & Mild
