Persian King Number Two

This is the second carving it is of a king battling a monster.

This is the second of the two Persian king carvings for a custom column that I am making for in a customers home. The carving is 18-in. x 24-in. and the stain will match the gray slat color on the artwork. To seal the wood I brushed on a conditioner on both sides of the 2-in.-thick basswood.

This Persian king is battling with what is known as a monster. The monster is a mix between a horned lion, raven and scorpion. This is the other side of a carved column for a customers home. The opposing two sides of the column is hand-carved to match artwork provided by the customer of two different Persian Kings while the other two sides will have routed flutes down the sides with a base and top crown molding.

Thank you for looking, and happy woodworking!!!

I’m guessing this customer has a few bucks to throw around, because he hired the best!

Spectacular carving! I really like the way you have managed the ‘feathers’.... just a cool layered look. What a project!

Wow! I am curious what the rest of the house looks like, a carving like that makes me think of a huge palace.

Seeing the greatness of your projects reminds me of how far I have yet to go.

Beautiful work.
