Crest & Mantle

The stag head is carved out of balsa wood, and hollowed, and to increase the durability of the form it is coated with a linen and glue combination, then painted.

The antlers are carved out of poplar wood and gilded. The crescent is removable and is constructed from two halves of copper with repoussed lettering. It was then silver plated and the stem has alternating gold and silver facets.
