Commissioned Carving ~ The Rampant Lion
Been a long while since I got a nice commission like this. The “Rampant Lion” is based on a Scottish Coat of Arms which is the subject of my collector. He gave me nothing more than a piece of clip-art that he wanted reproduced as a carving in the round.
I’ve started the carving with a clay maquette, used to help realize the design of the carving in 3 dimensions. I just glued up the basswood block this morning and will post entries as I progress through the woodcarving.
