Prize Buck won the WOW membership award at the Salon des Refuses: The Morning After. Congratulations to Gary Schmitt!
Here is what Gary has to say about his work and how growing up in the west has influenced his work.
"Prize Buck is one of many pieces I have created in response to growing up in the old west. With this piece in particular I wanted to recreate the deer mount in a way that people don’t see everyday. Prize Buck is meant to resemble the ideals of western culture while at the same time poking a little fun at it. One thing is for sure, this prize buck looks good mounted over any fireplace."
We and those who have come in to visit us certainly agree that Prize Buck would be the perfect addition to any fireplace.
