One hot wild deer from KISH!

Most Eurasian reindeer are domesticated and used for drawing sleds and as a source of milk, flesh, and hide. • Genus Rangifer, family Cervidae: several species, in particular R. tarandus.
ORIGIN late Middle English : from Old Norse hreindýri, from hreinn ‘reindeer’ + dýr ‘deer.’
First, it is interesting to know they are called elk in Britain, but whatever you call them, those deers have been part of the design world as an iconic piece of decor, and they all come in different types and design styles. I am sure you have seen some. In old English pubs you see the real preserved heads staring at you. Some are made of wood or even paper and fabric. For me, whatever is the material, they go well anywhere. They are also not limited to just your living room. It can also be use as a decorative piece for events and outdoor settings. Here are some to inspire you.
This one is really perfect for the kids room.
Time to collect and do a setting.
Beautiful for outdoor setting.
A sad one but it needs to be hanged because someone worked hard for it.
