Who Needs Antlers When You Have Plant Trophies?

Ever walk into a place and get instantly horrified by a deer head mounted on the wall staring  straight at you? Next time that happens, let the owner of the place know they can replace that dead animal with a much more attractive plant mount.

That’s right. Now there’s a vegan alternative to hunting trophies. Named Elkebana, the piece is a shield wall mount made of high quality birch plywood, solid walnut, solid oak or cork shield. It has two pieces of hand blown glass that hold interchangeable floral arrangements that stick out just like antlers but prettier!

“Elkebana is the first trophy for plant lovers,” writes Fabio Milito, one of the designers, on his website. “You just need flowers and imagination.”

The Italian designers behind the cruelty free invention are Milito and Paula Studio. They were inspired by the Japanese flower arrangement “ikebana.”

The traditional Japanese arrangements, like the Bonsai, have rules and traditional aspects but the Elkebana is more a free spirit kind of decor. Place long dry branches in it for a more antler-like look or go with a mix of tall and shorter flowers for some color. The important thing is that no animals will be harmed in the making of this piece.
