Samuel Côté turns moose antler sheds into incredible works of art. Can you believe he's only 20 years old?!
Most of us are beyond excited to simply find a shed antler. But for Samuel Côté, a 20-year-old artistic prodigy from Quebec City, Canada, turning moose antlers into breathtaking art has become a passion, and a profitable one, at that.
A gifted artist since the age of seven, Côté excelled in the fine arts while at school. It wasn't until 2013, inspired by his passion for nature (and moose in particular), that he decided to try his hand at antler carving. He sold his very first moose antler creation almost immediately through Facebook and has since then turned his talent into a blossoming full-time career.

And here are a few images that highlight the precise and intricate work that goes into creating each of these works of art:
It's stunning to see this kind of incredible talent!
