|Wave Rider---or MERMAID, 53x48x23 inches. Designed as a ship's figurehead.
For luck or tradition, the carver's art of the figurehead has led many a ship oer the world oceans and carried their crews safely home.
Mermaids and mermen have been a common theme for millennia, in part, because they represent the hybridity, ambiguity, and in-between-ness of human existence and the sub-conscious desire to return to the waters from whence we came.

|Persian war vet. 8x22x10 inches.
Patterned after a Greek original, with a twist. The Persian war lasted over 10 years so the vets were a tad grizzled by the time they returned home. He is middle aged, leather tough, hard as nails, a tad paranoid, and has a minimalist painting of Aphrodite on the inside of his shield. And his enemies were wondering why he was smiling while facing them in battle
