Our church celebrated it’s national bicentennial, & I was asked if I could make a felt banner. I just couldn’t resist making one out of wood.
I started out with a piece of 1/8” X 18” x 24” Birch plywood. I drew the design on paper, then traced the parts onto wood. I glued all the pieces down with carpenters glue, & gave it a satin polyurethane finish.
The wood of course, came from my always full, never empty scrap bin.
The man on the horse symbolized the first ministers of the Methodist church. They started out on horseback.

Dick, this is indeed and honour and a tribute to your artistic talent. What does the mounted horse symbolize? Is the design yours?

Thanks,
The mounted horse was a logo designed by the national conference. The rest is my own design.

Great use of the wood grain as an art element.

Nice design, Dick, but still curious. What does the mounted horse symbolize?
