The Majestic Lion by Thomas-Carvings The Majestic Lion by Thomas-Carvings
This is just one of the beautiful animals Tom has made. At this time, I do not have the exact dimensions of The Lion, but I will post them here soon.

The mane is made up individual pieces, mounted on springs so that they move when touched.

The suggestor writes: "This is such a lovely replica of a lion. It's so remarkable, that you can almost hear the deep throated roar and see what he's checking out on top of that hill as he scans his land watching over his pride" and I agree, The Majestic Lion by ~Thomas-Carvings is a wonderful wooden carving with a moving mane.

OH MAN! I knew I recognized this the moment I saw it! God I love your work, I saw them on both my trips to the hot shops!

The dragon has to be my favorite though. Very amazing. I wouldn't mind having something like that in my house.

I was from the Mercy Art Club. We've taken a tour last year and this year.

Keep it up!

We should campaign for touchable virtual items. I mean, if they can teleport people from place to place...oh wait, that's Star Trek. Haha.

(By the way, this is me trying to be funny. It doesn't always work, so if I come off as rude and/or annoying, that's not what I'm aiming for. You can pretend to laugh if you want, it makes me feel good. ^^)
