Jerry first designed and implemented a clay model of "Lakota War Chief" to use as a reference during the carving progress.

The first set of photos below are of the clay model.  The second set follows the carving progress and shows the finished piece.

The sculpture was carved in basswood, painted with a mixture of burnt umber and barn red acrylic paint, and finished with satin polyurethane.

Progress photos are posted below.
