The piece for the reimagined Mount Royal Hotel is inspired by the traditional buckheads that have long been features in mountain homes, cabins and lodges. "Hand-forging this one really gives tribute to the beautiful creatures that live in our Canadian Rockies, without spilling any blood," Greisinger says.
Throughout the entire Mount Royal Hotel project, working with local artists and craftspeople has been a key design vision. Learn more about the outstanding art collection that is showcased within the hotel.
