White Antelope

Here is one I finished up the carving part today.  He will probably be the most colorful piece I've done to date.  I've always wanted to do this type of headress just to see if I could and also to see how it would look as a woodcarving...at least one in my style.  There will be a lot of attachments to make it reflect just what a real one incorporates but that's the fun of doing these pieces.

Hope you like it so far.  More photos in the Gallery and comments always welcome.

  2. I have not seen a headdress like that before, so should be quite a treat to me to see it painted. An excellent carving.

  7. That split buffalo headress looks great Lynn and the attachments you'll make will be spectacular I just know. I like the lazy stich beadwork & rosette lanes you put on the war shirt that will look most effective. Can't wait to se him all painted up.

  8. Very unusual headdress for sure. This fellow should look pretty amazing once you get all the details colored as you usually do.
