This is the Shih-tzu all framed and ready to give. My grandma loved it and shows it to anyone who walks in the door. The frame, I found out later when I went back to Davis Hardware to bring in more framing, is gilded and French-made. Yikes! It's prefect for this piece- brings out all of the lavender and silver undertones. I love it!
I made this for my mother-in-law who loves roosters. This is still hanging in her kitchen today even though it was one of my first pieces. It is a Petei.
