    This is the first one of two rifles, carved and inlaid with gold and platinum. The design is inspired by the Mozarabic style of the Alhambra.

    Hello the other Sam ,
    indeed it was a complex design and it took a long time , a long work also to cut and to inlay.
    I have an apprentice, Valerian Henrotte, a clever guy who helped me a lot on this.
    It was more than one year of work for the two rifles and not yet completely finished! many different parts, all decorated, and the barrels too! )

    Magnificent work Alain and thank you for showing it to us. It is always such a pleasure to see your work. Looks to me like it may have taken almost as long to lay out as to cut. Wow!!
