I have showed it to a LOT of people, I' ve even looked under a microscope.. It is made of metal... The color of ni ckel What is most interesting to me, is that if you look under the chin s of the deer, there is a triangle piece of the metal that is not there...Underneath the metal is some sort of pottery that looks like terra cotta. So, what I believe is that the whole thing was made of pottery, and the metal was applied over the top of it. That is what I used to think until I started looking at it a gain. The vessel part is too thin to be pottery. You can see terra cotta looking stuff u nder the chins and in the mouth of the deer. On one of the deer chins, I just noticed, the terra cotta stuff is partially missing and it is metal underneath. For some reason I love this old relic I ha ve. I'm hoping he is worth a million dollars, so I can get medical and some bills paid. But if not, I hope he's worth something.... If not, I'll just keep him, maybe get it tested somewhere.. If any of you experts out there can tell me anything about it, I would appreciate it! Please look at all of the photos as they are part of the description. I try to be as accurate as possible.
