This stunning piece of timber was carefully carved by hand, to reveal the characters within:
BlackCrow and Makha joined by their trusty steeds - ThunderBolt and LightFoot, alongside the majestic BrokenWing eagle, Shadow the wolf and the Dream Catcher.
The dark colouring was added with an iron acetate (chemical burn) mix of white vinegar and wire wool - the acids in the vinegar breaking down the wire wool.
Smoothed and sealed with Mr RY's 50/50 mix of Linseed and Teak Oil, to highlight the stunning grain.
This piece represents the Native American Indians ethos; life, death and rebirth... much like RY's Reusing, Recycling and Recreating... "Rekindled" = brought back to life.
In a world of flat pack & mass production, it is a pleasure to create pieces that are built to stand the test of time.
Stands at 75cm, with a circumference of 150cm.
This piece is extremely heavy and so local collection / delivery would be ideal. Otherwise, please get in touch to discuss courier options.
