Chaps – Western Bluebird – 14″ x 19 1/2″ – 950 Edition Signed and Numbered Paper Print
“The wrangler guide rides into the clearing at the end of another day with a pack horse train. He removes his well worn chaps and other gear. Laying tack on the ground is not proper. He could hang it on the posts of the corral, but this moose antler is handier.
He picked the antler up on the trail, many years ago, and hammered a spike through it to attach it to a porch beam on his cabin. protected from the nibblings of mice that eventually demolish all shed antlers. This rodent craving for calcium is the reason why old antlers are seldom seen.
His cabin is in a remote valley, rarely visited. Perhaps this is why the Western bluebird feels comfortable enough to hide its nest somewhere within the vicinity.” – Robert Bateman
