Carved Gun Stock

This work is not high art, but part of my practice that I call 'Jobbing Sculptor" where I take on whatever a commissioner wants in the belief that some of the work will widen my skill set.      The brief here was to carve a copy of a silver candlestick with a sprig of holly into a shot gun stock.     I have never carved walnut before and never worked on such  expensive  material.   The gun seemed to be £2000 plus on Google!!!   The work is small and was done with staples very carefully
