What!? Two lonesome George's!!

Lonesome George
Another Galapagos tortoise is in production. This time its the famous 'Lonesome George'. The sad old soul thats the last living example of his species.
I've had a request for a bronze version of George, and I've been at it for a few months now. This is the 1st attempt, which ended up a little on the large side. I've taken it to be fired at an industrial kiln in an attempt to reduce the size a little. Fingers crossed that everything it fires ok - it's a 7 day firing to 1200 C.
I've nearly finished George mark2 which is quite a bit smaller, and looking good. Once I've made this one the next step is to make a rubber mould, and then take that to a bronze foundary.
George is destined for far off lands!
