    Engraving of wolves in moonlight

    This is a piece of optical crystal( the same type of crystal used in camera lenses, Binoculars, and rifle scopes )that I have hand engraved . The engraving is on the front and back to produce a 3 dimensional effect, the moon is very deeply engraved so it lights up ,when a light source is shone onto it.

    David those are both fantastic. It must give you immense satisfaction completing a work like that. I an in awe of your talent.
    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
