    This is a block of optical crystal I hand engraved with elephant bull charging and the rest of the herd in the background. The engraving is deep, freehand engraved with a dental drill, using diamond and stone burrs, most of the engraving is done on the back of the piece with some work on the front to give a 3D effect, the bull is very deep as it is the furthest thing forward. I intend to do some more pieces along a similar format -such as buffalo, lions etc,.

    Yes I sell my work as it is my professional business. I take commissions aswell for all sorts of subjects eg. hunters portraits with their trophy animals ,houses, dog portraits etc ,if you look on "another new to the forum" post on Introduction and greets ,you will see a commission I did before Christmas for a hunter in Canada.
