I am a lucky girl! A few days ago I won Debora's giveaway, a miniature Narwhal tusk. Narwhals are the unicorns of the sea , with their beautiful long tusks they look like mythical creatures.
Debora is a very talented miniaturist and, hardly surprising, made perfect miniature versions of Narwhal tusks. Her attention to detail is wonderful, and is was a joy to unwrap my gift.
For the time being I have put the tusk in the library of my Canal House, but I want to give it s spot where the detail can be seen more easily. One detail I really like (and can't be seen in the photo) is the hollowed out end of the tusk, it really looks like the inside of a tooth.
But all of the detail is wonderful really, the beautiful curved grooves in the tusk, the little routed edge around the mahogany, the hand engraved brass plaque...
Thank you so much for your beautiful giveaway Debora, it is a little treasure!
