great looking carving. It looks great. I especially like the detail in the mane. I also like the way you have mounted it with the two offset contrasting boards. It all adds up to a very nice carving.

Looks great and awesome much better than my first carving of a bird that looked like a blob of poop.

It started out as the head for a rocking horse I was going to build for my newborn. I threw in the towel after about 2 weeks of not being happy with how the body was coming out. The head took about 5 hours of work

Cool carving! Like the details on the face and the mane of the horse and the base as well. Superb work!
