I don’t know about you, but I need a fantasy fix. I haven’t even had the time to read latest Wheel of Time book! Yeah, I am a slacker. But anyway, here is something that took care of my yearning for some fantasy. It’s not text, but these photos are seriously going to take your breath away.
Horns are a staple in fantasy stories, and I am sure fantasy fans have their very own ideas as to how horns in stories look. ((Never mind that some horns are actually things that you use to sound a signal and that other horns are merely decorative in purpose.)) Well, stop imagining and take a look at the work of Phillip Montgomery aka bonecarverpm. ((Deviant Art Page)) He makes use of real animal horns and carves them with awesome designs.
Last, but not the least, is the Welsh Dragon Horn. Needless to say, this is my favorite of all the horns in bonecarverpm’s collection. That dragon looks very much like my “personal dragon” – a piece of artwork that a friend made for me. I think it’s genius how the muscles and scales were added into the details. Dept. of Awesomeness material, for sure!
Yup, this gal’s been blown away.
