This beautiful walnut rocking chair was hand carved in the
Baroque style of the 18th century.
The shoulders are lions’ heads representing power of person who is in the chair. Flowing down the arm rests are Fish-Dragons, ending in detailed fish-dragons heads.
Below the arm rests, carved on the inside and outside of the rocking chair, are mythical
griffins that are seemingly flying the chair and you it into the air.
These fantastic creatures all contribute to the majestic feel of the rocking chair,
which has an ornate shell at the head. The quarter inch carving on the back
of the chair adds an elegant flair while being comfortable to sit in.
After putting your feet on the convenient footrest, you can relax enough to
become one with the chair.
Every time you look at the chair, you find a new, beautiful, and intricate detail that you may have only glanced over before.
I Designed,build,carved and finished this masterpiece approximately in 9 month.

I thought I recognized that chair! The first thought was that someone blatantly ripped off a picture of Boris’ work and posted it as their own. Then I saw the username “Borchik”.

I’m not sure if you remember giving Steve Remmert a poster of that chair but we’ve still got it hanging on the wall in the shop.

Hope you’re move to California is working well for you.
