Pied Fawn by Phoenix-Cry Pied Fawn by Phoenix-Cry
This is a little pied buck (I thought it was a doe at first but while working on the underside I found that it was a buck) that was born on a deer farm. The shaved spot on his leg is from where they put in an IV to try and save him when he got sick. Sadly it wasn't enough and he died at just three days old.

I'm going to place him on a base that will have a plant that comes up to hide the shaved bit.

In the real work his nose isn't so brightly pink, the flash or something must have done that.

This is my first fawn! Man they are a LOT of work!

Fawns are almost never killed for taxidermy, 9 out of 10 if you see a fawn mount it was raised on a farm and died a natural death.

This is one of the most gorgeous pieces of taxidermy I've seen. I would LOVE to rock that in my studio! He's so well done and peaceful!
