Unique Military Figures

These figures are carved from basswood. They are first primed, then colored with bole, and finally gilded. All my sculptures are uniquely created, each one cut by hand from a single block of wood.

 

This knight is about 1 foot tall and is mounted on a wooden pedestal.  This figure depicts an English Crusader from the 13th century. The armor is gilded.  The ornaments on the frock are blotted out by hand. The colored parts are hand-painted, mimicking realistic light effects (glare and shadow).
