As everyone has been so receptive to my work and art I thought I would give everyone on this site the first look at a new series I am working on. This is “Goliath” it is a full size wearable trojan helmet. It is made from Texas Pecan, Walnut, and Horse Hair. It will be mounted atop a sword and shield I am currently designing. As far as I know I am the only one creating this style of helmet. Marshall Garlow from Canada does a style of helmet his father found in the Scotish Peat Boggs but this is mine. I wanted to use this piece as a Thank You to all of you who have responded so favorable to my work.
