As with many of our designs this proud fellow is built in layers.
First the picture frame containing the background. I used veneer for the sky.
Then the body is glued on top of the sky inside the frame.
The head and ears are made separately and glued on top of the body and overlapping the frame.
I cheated with this one and used leather and brass chain for the harness but have also made them all out of wood.
