I fell in love with this unusual Moose wood carving as soon as I laid eyes on it! Just one look at those magnificent antlers and I was hooked! Such a personality in this one! Only in his 30's, Eleazar Morales has already achieved the status of a master in wood carving. His true genius of talent is just awe inspiring. Eleazar's work is quite distinctive. He began carving at the young age of 14 and furthered his artistic development by studying the work of his world-famous neighbor Manuel Jimenez. When Manuel Jimenez would discard a woodcarving that did not suite him, Eleazar would study the scraps left behind to further his knowledge of the art of wood carving. Eleazar has certainly come a long way from such a humble beginning, and now his work is shown in galleries around the world. His work is very fine in both the carving detail and the incredible realistic painting done with a very steady and precise hand. We just love the sense of movement in much of his work, and how the painting really reflects the nature of the animal. Eleazar Morales is one of our personal favorites, and we are so excited to be able to share his work with you!

I love the realistic shading in this stunning moose! The sense of movement in the legs and the cool antlers, and the positioning of the head twisted backwards, makes this a wonderful and more difficult to achieve carving! The face is simply adorable, with the rounded snout and the big carved in eyes. The antlers, ears and tail are removable for safe shipping, and the piece was signed by the artist.

Approximate Measurements: 13 3/4" high x 8" wide x 8 1/4" deep
