    red deer at Lyme Park, Cheshire, England

    I was commissioned by The National Trust to hand engrave this 7 inch wedge circle of optical crystal for a retirement present to a ranger who had worked at Lyme Park for 45 years.
    The piece is engraved on the back with a view of the house at Lyme Park (yes I have to engrave it in mirror image to show the correct way through the crystal) also on the back is the red hind. The stag and grass is engraved on the front to give a 3 dimensional effect. All engraving is carried out freehand using a dental drill.
    The deer park at Lyme Park has a herd of red and fallow.

    Fantastic as always David. you have amazing 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 4: IDENTIFY YOUR TARGET BEYOND ALL DOUBT


    To be a Human is to be an Alien, ask the animals, We invade this world and we are killing it, we are destroying the earth and nobody gives a fuck except for the animals
