A bit more carving.

Hi Phil,

I've been studying this exquisite work and I'm truly amazed at the level of complexity overall - for example, what I assume must be ivory scrimshaw inlay for the landscaped backgrounds. I'm trying to get an idea of the time frame such an undertaking must have involved. Is this 6 months work? Less? Or more like a year?

Agian - thank you for sharing!

Hi Magnus,

 

The backgrounds are steel and not ivory and it's engraved (cut) not scrimshawed.

 

There's more than seven months work with this one.

 

Phil.
