"Ohio Whitetail Mantel" features a large whitetail buck in a forest setting.  Our customer is a bow hunter and

asked for an arrow in flight to be included in the center scene.  The design includes oak leaves on both ends of the mantel face.  Hi Tom and Julie!

Design and progress photos are posted below.  Click on Page 2 for the finished mantel.
