    Day's of the British Raj -tiger hunting

    This one and one similar I hand engraved some years ago showing a tiger hunting scene in India in the day's of the British Empire 19th-20th century, it's one of my favourites.

    The driver would want time to plug his ears. That is fantastic work, so much action.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    OK David when are you going to exhibit your work in New Zealand?
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    HANDS ARE STILL STEADY, BUT THE EYES ARE NOT AS GOOD AS THEY USED TO BE -- YOU KNOW YOU ARE GETTING OLDER WHEN YOUR ARMS ARE NOT LONG ENOUGH !!

    Awesome Mate

    Those glasses would look even more spectacular with a good double shot of Single Malt Islay and a couple of cubes of ice in them.

    A man could then admire your art work after a hard days slog while slowly sampling the nectar of the gods.

    Cheers
    Pete

    How much would a glass like that cost?
    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts
