I'm really excited about this!
Capital is dead labor, which, vampire-like, lives only by sucking living labor, and lives the more, the more labor it sucks.

So, same address it is then. lol. I just showed it to my nephew, and he was like [teenage indifference] "Oh yes, where did you get that then, Gandalf is it?".[/teenage indifference]

No, I made it with this carving set up, and it is Thors dad, Odin the Wanderer.

*completely stunned expression* "What the fuck, you are joking, you made that? . . .  HOW?, what is it made out of?, it doesn't look like bone, is it bone, omfg ! ! ?".

Sad to think how his expectations of me have changed since he was six. He used to think Tiggers could do anything. lol.

As for the "doesn't get there" thing, we will let that deal with its own Karma. I am tempted to put a postcard in with it and ask the customs guys to send the postcard on if they decide that animal products are too naughty, or something.

I'm going to do what I always do when sending something that might trigger a search, I will have to fill out a parcel label here, so I will put "Board game counter and dice" on it, where it asks for a description of contents.

Well,  it seriously isn't the right shape to photograph properly in the scanner, Lou, I can see it just wouldn't work. I used the shape of the bone extremely, and  deliberately, so it would look like "This has been carved in A Bone", a part of Odins fiefdom, his normal spoils. And I got no camera, should have asked Nick to take a shot last night, shouldn't I.  We will let Red do it, anyway, I don't want to spoil it for him.

These Tigers of yours, they got an iconic image, or even better, a joking iconic image?.  =]

Hey, I didn't remember  this Odin from the Dream comic, do you think it is an homage to your friends work, Red?.

Not really, it's just a different riff on the basic image of Odin.

that is quite impressive, it is.

I just got my medallion! I saw the package and was so confused until after a few minutes of distrust I realized what it was, HAHA!! It looks AWESOME!!! You did a wonderful job with it. I'll take a picture soon.

Thank you so much, man! It came out really great. My boyfriend was also very impressed with it and thought it looked great.
