Spirit hides are sculpted on the tanned hides of deer, elk, moose, and buffalo. David removes the hair that he doesn't want and trims the guard hairs to get the sense of depth and dimension, The color varies by the depth of the cut and allows for shading and artistic control of the image.

The exposed skin can be painted to create the full artisty of the piece, or left as tanned buckskin for a more natural artwork.
