This is one of my most recent projects, inspired by the grace and beauty of large wild cats. The length is 17 inches and stands 7 inches tall. With this project I had created my own stain from oil paints and watco natural oil finish. The black lines in the tiger are hand burned in with a wood burner.

Just saw your dragon. This is really nice, as well. I should get my carving club to post their projects here. Carving doesn’t have much representation, here. I will ask around, Thursday.
