This is one of the four elk antlers arches that welcome visitors into the town square park in Jackson, Wyoming. Antlers from male elks are shed annually so this is an interesting way to reuse them.
wow, that is A LOT of antlers.
That is truly gorgeous, AND amazing. It would offend me except that I know they shed them as a natural part of their life cycle. (glad you mentioned that :-))
Lovely creation with the antlers.I would love to walk through that.
That is an amazing arch. Cool use of the antlers.
very impressive. thanks for sharing the bits of information.
wow, that is a lot of antlers. never got the chance to explore Jackson Hole, this is an interesting way indeed of using the antlers shed off by male elks.
That is unique.
Happy to hear those antlers are shed naturally, wow what a collection!
Quite impressive. It looked abstract at first until I recognized that it was made of antlers.
That's a LOT of antlers and a LOT of shedding! Beautiful arch. :)
That brought back memories. I had an uncle that owned a drug store on the square. Last time I was there it was persian rug store. There is a monument to veterans in the square and it has his name on it.
Artistic and must be a lot of work.Greetings,Filip
wowww, impressive, do they lose them actually once a year?happy rest of the week from me!
I almost made an assumption this was a result of excessive hunting. Glad you explained it first thing.
Very interesting.They are like bones.
They do look like bones and yes the horns are lost annually. I, too, thought it was an important point to mention the antlers are shed naturally and not due to hunting. It is a lot of work especially to put together 4 of them.Yogi: That is impressive to have his name in the town square. I might have taken a picture of it, but the wording is too small. Is it the one in the middle of the square with a cowboy riding a horse?
Oh, I'm so relieved I read your first comment! So the antlers are shed naturally? *sigh of relief*Great capture!
