    unicorn ornament

    Mary Christmas everyone!

    I debated whether to post this since it looks a little rough close up, but

    maybe not so bad when you consider that it’s less than 3” in size, so even small deviations and tool

    marks look large.  It is based on a stone carving at Linlithgow Palace in Scotland, and I donated

    it to a toy drive for a girl who loves unicorns.  I understand they are popular these days.

    I don't think it looks rough at all. I think the tool marks give it character. Good job. I'm sure the girl who got it loves it.

    Bill, that is a great ornament! The surface definitely give it "life".

    Thanks for the remarks.  Appreciated.  - Bill
