    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.

    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!!

    Thank you for your comments.
    Thank you Sam,
    I like to explore new possibilities and I had the opportunity to imagine a decoration in that style which is unusual on a gun.
    Arabic style is mainly abstract and geometrical and I have thought that it was well suited to this type of rifle.
    These two rifles are built by Hartmann and Weiss for a Sheik of Arabia , this one should be displayed ( in the white) at their booth at the Las Vegas SCI show .
