I carved this piece about 15 years ago. It is carved from one piece of walnut wood. He measures 6 1/2” high x 8” long. About a year ago the ineffable happened. I was showing it to my niece one day and it went from about $1000.00 dollar value to about a $50.00 dollar value item within a split second ,as she dropped it and it hit my glass topped coffee table. My heart skipped about 3 beats as it made a terrible glass crashing sound, the table is ok, but the left horn got broken. She cried and I said it was ok. I glued it, but the joint showed, so I painted them, but I am not happy with it the way it is. I think I will try to match the paint a little closer to the walnut color…(if that’s possible)? I would never sell it for $50.00 anyways.
THANKS FOR VIEWING MY GALLERY!!!
