Sigurd Slays Fafnir the Dragon
New Shield inspired by Viking Carvings from the Hylestad Church portal, approx 12-13th C. I made the shield as well as the painting. 

Painted using trompe l'oeil technique to provide illusion of high relief wood carving. Right, I covered this wooden shield in canvas, then painted it to look like...wood. 

Wooden Flat-top Kite, curved 
22 x 30"
Stitched Rawhide Edging
