The Unicorn is alive and well in every little girls dream. The male Unicorn depicted is a proud and powerful protector of his herd. He is as handsome as a Unicorn gets and is a frequent gift to girls and young ladies of all ages.  There are persisting rumours that the Unicorn can be seen running along the beaches of the North shores of Lake Erie especially in the evening.  Rumours desribe the Unicorns as smaller than a horse and more the size of a small pony and even their pale colourful coats they are swift and difficult to spot. Keep looking! With a beautiful ivory irredescent shiny  coat and pale blue eyes, it is a favourite of children everywhere!

The Frame is  7" x 7" square stained Hardwood. Round opening is 5" dia. Artwork is covered with a Clear Domed glass lens.

Giving rise to an idea for a carving can be a daunting experience. Whether you’re an Author, a Painter or any other creative pursuit a project has to begin with an idea! How does an artist generate an idea for a carving subject? Almost all of my inspiration comes from the natural world and I am equally delighted by all creatures, large or small. A small Hummingbird is incredibly beautiful as is North America’s largest deer, the Moose. The fragility of a small Butterfly must convey that delicate fragility in the carving in addition to the startling beauty of its design. The power and size of the Moose must also be expressed. The final piece may take days or weeks to complete and once completed, the wood must be sealed with a durable finish and left to cure in preparation for casting a mold. The sealing and painting process must not lose or diminish any of the fine details of the hand-carved original.
