Default Present for an RCMP friend

The animal on the RCMP crest is a bison.

I made this wall hanging for the back of my friends bar as a Christmas present.

Because it is illuminated from behind by Christmas LED's the images are not very good.
It is almost 3' wide. Made from tempered hardboard. It was prefinished but I sprayed a bone color over the top for highlights. The horns are finished with copper patina spray, as is the center of the feathers.

Now I have to figure out how to wrap it!

the last picture...I feathered the image for a mysterious glow

no he didn't find the van. He works in a different city.
I have known him long before he became a member.
He used to work at Canadian Tire with my wife.

Not my own pattern Evie It is from South West Scroll Saw Patterns, one of patrick Spielmans books. It was originally made for a tandard sheet of paper. I canned the image and printed it over several page.
I used this site http://www.blockposters.com/ to enlarge it.


Real Santa????? naw but I know him, he lives a ways north of here
