    Title: Moose antlers attached to the ridge pole of a sod roofed cabin at Chena Indian Village, Alaska
    Creator: Campbell, Sandy
    Description: This set of moose antlers, often referred to as a "rack of antlers" is mounted on the ridgepole over the entrance to a reconstructed trappers' cabin at the Chena Indian Village near Fairbanks, Alaska. The presence of the palms, sometimes called "pans" or "shovels" on the antler indicates that the moose was in its prime. Moose lose their antlers every year. On the sod roof of the house grasses and wildflowers are growing. The root structure of the plants that grow on sod roofs help keep the roof in place.
