This is very neat, Vikings have always facinated me, their history I mean. Some of the leaders names were really cool, they sounded like our modern day wrestlersl. You know Biff the Great names like that. Great bust I wish I would have stayed with sculpture, in college, but it did’nt take long to see the other talent and get discouraged. mike
