Well folks I've nearlly finished this one . I hope you like it as much as me :
I must do more work on the hair, ... and some straps to hold the helmet on.
I hope you all enjoy the holiday season that is comming soon.
Yes, the details are what make this so appealing. For example, the slight twist of the rider's spine and the uplift of the face, all this makes is to natural and in action, instead of what one would expect of a heavy metal sculpture; static and dead.
THANK YOU :
Jake and DAi and TinyLiny. It makes me very happy when people that know horse stuff (you guys...not me) say I've made a reasonable 'go' at this project. It was an honour to be asked to make this memorial and I hope that no-one will be greatly dissapointed by my efforts.
Well , its finished! Taylor's parents will do a final inspection today and hopefully in two weeks time I will install it at the Shepparton Pony Club.
Here are some fotos I took at home before the final in spection.
Thank you for the kind words!
Hi everyone, well I finally installed the work at the Shepparton pony Club.
I didnt attend the opening as I considered it a personal matter with Taylors Familty , friends and equine community.
Below is a link to a newspaper aricle that covered the unveiling. I am told it was a beautiful ceremony and that the sculpture was well recieved by all.
