Jagermeister by screwbald Jagermeister by screwbald
Loose translation of the German poem:

This is the hunter's badge of glory:
That he protects and tends his quarry,
Hunts with honour, as is due,
And through the beast to God is true.

Jagermeister by ~screwbald is an amazing work of art. At first glance you may wonder why a buck would be hunting - but look closer - he's taking out the resident wolves in his forest. Everything about this piece pays homage to the beauty of nature and the careful balance between predator and prey. ( Suggested by Marker-Guru and Featured by cooley )

Dignity, nobility...pagan hunter king of the forest wears the cross necklace, he has been christianized through centuries.... Meaningful work, full of references, the deer strikes an haughty pose.
