This is how the final sculpture will look. I added rulers at the top of the image to give you some idea of the final size.
The overall sculpture will be approximately 10X26X12 inches. The horses will overhang the 10X16 inch oval base by several inches along the longest side, and the spear will rise above the Indian’s head by about 4 inches.
The detail still has a ways to go in that the Indian will be seated on some sort of saddle, will be carrying a shield on his left arm, and will have some sort of headdress.
I have made some progress on the horses, but there needs to be some sort of minimal cross ties between them to strengthen the overall sculpture, and I haven’t even begun to sculpt the base.
Having said all of that I am still optimistic about completing the sculpture by the end of June.
