Ostheimer red deer family
Our red deer family was created by Stephan Zech, who took over the design of our figures from Margarete Ostheimer in 1995. His designs wonderfully capture the elegance but also the size and strength of these animals.
The stag underwent a change in design a few years ago, when the antlers became attached to the back of the stag. This change is a good example of the need to make compromises in our designs to ensure the stability of the figures.
