Seeing Dick’s Viking reminded of a project I did this past Fall. I carved the old Cardinal logo for the St. Louis Cardinals, a professional baseball team. This bird was carved in stone in the old stadium. With the demolition of the old stadium, the Cardinal stone was moved and given a new home at the new stadium.
The wood is walnut, with the bat painted with gold leaf paint. The size is approximately 10”x10” (not sure what that is in metric for the boys downunder). The second photo is the actual carved stone on the new stadium.
