The Arabian companion

….the Saluki dog! This breed of dog had been around for many centuries and is believed to be one of the world’s oldest dog breeds. The Saluki dog was/is used as a “sight hound” for hunting, hence its long legs and slim body.

I wanted to make a sculpture of a Saluki dog to accompany my Arabian horse collection. Here are some in-progress pictures (keep in mind that the sculpture is nowhere near done).


I will post more updates on its progress as it evolves into a realistic sculpt 🙂 And here are some pictures of real Salukis to give you an idea what it will look like later:
