Our fascination with antlers, horns, and the animals that grow them just gets stronger. The latest iterations are more design element than trophy; they’re made from metal and ceramic, often painted and occasionally even bedazzled. Kevin Olson, who recently started creating modern antler art, explains the appeal: “I grew up in a hunting family and never really wanted a hairy, dusty head around. But I always loved the sculptural wildlife presence that is traditional to Minnesota."
