arabian mare

for my first carved horse, i aimed to carve an arabian mare to portrait their elegance, grace and strength. she is carved from linden 1/10 of lifesize, so her withers are a tad over 15cm high. she was a great experience for me, as she was very demanding but for now i am happy with how she turned out ... if you are interested there are more images, and the complete story how i carved her, on my blog ...

linden, 1/10 of lifesize. the finish is a coat of clear matte varnish, followed by a stain, and then a thin layer of clear briwax.
