  • Pacific Northwest Style Dogs (repost)

    Here is a link to a thread about carving my dogs (miniature longhair dachshunds) in the Pacific Northwest style:

    You have mixed several carving styles but it still looks good. I've always liked the carvings with the mask-like extensions.
    Very novel portrait of your pack. What are the symbolic designs around the disk?

      The symbols around the circle are split U's. I had to use my imagination - there are few long-hair dachshunds in the native culture.

        Thanks. So Milk-Bone design never made it to paper? I wonder what the PacNW people would have thought of a dachshund 3 centuries ago.
        Franken-Otter? Good imagination in the placement of design elements.

              Thanks to everyone for the compliments. I noticed that the symbolic faces on the dog's ears are unfinished in these photos. The dog's eyes are tiger-eye stone insets. The wolf eyes are cat-eye shells from the Philippines. The wood is poplar - 12" x 24"

                  Before they slip me over the standing part of the fore sheet, let them pipe: "Up Spirits" one more time.
