Scottish Thistle

$ 140.00

Do you know how the thistle became the emblem of the Sottish nation? The story goes that a sleeping group of Scottish warriors avoided an ambush by an invading Norse army when one of the Norseman stepped on a thistle with his bare feet. He shrieked and yelled which alerted the Scots and allowed them to defeat the invaders. The thistle was then adopted as the symbol of Scotland.

Dimensions: 13 x 13 x 1.5

Please note: This piece is for hanging inside.  Mahogany that is left to the elements will not fair well.  Beautifully crafted one at a time, each wood carving starts from an original hand drawing. Every step of the carving and painting process is done by hand with great attention to detail and as a finishing touch a French paste wax is buffed into the finish until a rich luster is obtained.
