Rinko Kawauchi, a Japanese photographer, shooting mostly in 6×6 format.
Her work is characterized by a serene, poetic style, depicting the ordinary moments in life.
A traditional hunter’s trophy called “charivari,” the silver ornaments worn with lederhosen in southern Germany and Austria.
Made with a silver standard no longer used in Germany, so most likely dates to the first half of 20th century or earlier. Made of real marten (wild weasel) jaw in fine silver 835 mount.
This would go great with a grouse foot.
