This is my newest figurine. I got him finished a couple of weeks ago.

This time I wanted to do something a bit more challenging... well this running position was quite hard to make. I used FimoAir clay, that was not the cleverest choise... that clay breaks very easily. Neutral
Anyways I'm very happy with him. I love you

He enjoys feeling wind on his face and loves his own speed Very Happy

Very brave from you choosing such an hard pose! :) It has a nice movement and it is surely a hard figure to make! :) Congrats! :)
The breed choice was also good, let's see if Susanne loves also the idea! Wink Very Happy

Yes it looks so funny with the ears and tail, - that is how they look Laughing

They are SO incredibly fast Very Happy
For perhaps 3000 years Salukis have been bred to catch gazelles !
To see Fidda run, you don`t beleive it, - not only can she easily go more than 80 km an hour for very long distances, she can turn 45 degrees at full speed, just like we flick a finger.
I don`t know how she does it, I didn`t believe my own eyes the first times I saw it.
Ever she was a little puppy she has trained herself to run full speed, and suddenly go zig-zagging...just like you see some gazelles do! She LOVES it, grinning all over her face, she was clearly made for it Very Happy

They are also very proud dogs.
You have to deserve their love and be their friend, not their master. But if you are a friend, you won`t find a more loving companion Very Happy

The Arabs have a saying : A saluki is not a dog ! It is ....a Saluki ! " Laughing Laughing

I am so awed that you could catch the spirit of this amazing creature, Desco cheers
