finally finished this… took way too long.
Another Viking art inspired choker, this time Mammen style :)
and another octopus :)

inspired by the Anglo-Saxon art from the early 7th century, namely the borders of sinuous animal ornament from the shoulder clasps, found at the Sutton Hoo ship-burial site in England. (see: www.britishmuseum.org/explore/highlights/articles/k/the_sutton_hoo_ship-burial.aspx)
This cut-out, made from genuine, vegetable tanned leather, was inspired by the Celtic (Pictish) art from the V - IX century and also the movie “How to train your dragon” and the Night Fury - she’s just like my cat!
Commission.Leather cutout, painted with leather paints, old clock parts applied with epoxy glue.(Will be applied to the back of a leather jacket, or hanged in a big brass porthole frame :) )
The concept changed during work, from white with golden borders, to gold with white borders, to black with gold borders… to finally become this. :)
2 days of work, mostly because the paints dry slowly :)
