Very well made, Wanda, and the figure moves so smoothly.

You could have added a pair of narrow skis – his action is so like a langlauf cross-country skier – and perhaps a rifle for the Olympic event LOL.

(but then perhaps the beautiful alpine flowers would have to be under snow!

(I think I’m getting too involved here . . . . . . . .)

Another amazing piece Wanda. What kind of wire are you using in this project? Could you tell us about how tall she is? Thanks for the post.
