This is so amazing! How many years have you been sculpting to become this good? Also, what is his horn made out of?

I have always sculpted, since I was 18 months old. I started doing it professionally in 1984.
The horn is made of pewter and is plated with gold.
Thank you!

This is the Kirin I have! But mine is the regular colouration. Most things look cool in tiger colouration!

Wow that's so cool!!!!!
How do you do the scale pattern??? Must be hard!

Oh it is a pain. The scales are all individually hand carved and sanded . I had a skilled helper to do a lot of the final sanding on this one, so the scales are extra perfect and polished.

You might find yourself spending your work time doing other things besides art!

Not that I am ungrateful for having a helper! It is wonderful to have someone who you can trust to work on your stuff!
