Strong Heart

Here is the one I'm presently working on.  While I've done one previously similar to it I will again change this one enough to where it will be unique.

I still have to decide just what type of decoration to put on the head...either feathers or a hat.  At the moment I'm leaning toward feathers and have made a few just in case that's the direction I end up going.   The crosshatched areas on each side of the jacket will be beaded and the center medallion will be a peace medal.  I've lightly etched the relief of a bust on the medal that will be enhanced when it's painted.

I was originally going to name this one "The Delegate" as if he was heading for a peace conference.  However, I decided to save that name for another figure as I think a peace delegate would be dressed to more represent their tribe.  Here's a photo of the feathers, ready to be painted.

He should be pretty colorful once painted and should make an attractive piece to someone's collection.

  1. Very nice Lynn. I like this as it has so much detail and yet there is a softness to it. Beautiful!
