Hi Friends, a new resident of the forest came from Viet Nam
a built-in Saola my shelves. cheers

After my birds, my Tapir I tried another model home:
A rare ox charm.
Made with different dough and my Tapir volatilles because it is in cuireen end of modeling.
(For once I cooked but I'm not going to eat or to eat .....) Wink Very Happy

So quite a hurry to give it a try here is the result .....
Also still gaps but it is nice,
judge for yourself,
the test is encouraging, it remains to be done to progrets of hooves and horns
and painting.

You know to follow the train of Anna, and Hariet phill they should hang a few wagons of advances. scratch study Embarassed



The Saola, Vu Quang ox or Asian unicorn, also, infrequently, Vu Quang bovid (Pseudoryx nghetinhensis), one of the world's rarest mammals, is a forest-dwelling bovine found only in the Annamite Range of Vietnam and Laos. The species was discovered in 1993 in Vu Quang Nature Reserve by a joint survey of the Ministry of Forestry and the World Wide Fund for Nature.[1] The team found three skulls with unusual long straight horns kept in hunters' houses. In their article, the team proposed "a three month survey to observe the living animal" but, more than 15 years later, there is still no reported sighting of a Saola in the wild by a scientist.

In late August 2010, a Saola was captured by villagers in Laos but died in captivity before government conservationists could arrange for it to be released back in to the wild. The carcass is being studied with the hope that it will advance scientific understanding of the Saola

Thank you Ken and Carolynn.
I do not know there a few times there was a newspaper article on the Saola villagers had captured one,
I cut the article and put aside I found and thought to myself that this animal deserved special attention.

Luc, very nice job. Keep on sculpting-- each animal you do will be better then the last, and before long you will be addictive to sculpting.

Happy scupting.
