    This is a 75mm ancient Irish Chieftain and his wolfhound, sculpted in A+B epoxy and a mixture of Sculpeys and that. Some Preiser bits and pieces also. As per the pre figure research:
    Evidently, shoes were not worn at this time yet, although robes could have been made of silk or plaid wool. A brat (semi-circular cloak) was often worn, and made of many materials, this one of a piebald animal skin.
    The "fur" collar was made of material tufts pulled to look like fur...can't figure out why. There was wolf and probably bear available, but perhaps didn't give the desired effect.
    The hair was almost always long for chieftains and unkempt, usually a reddish or light brown color predominating.The split beard (Viking style) without a moustache was a popular style also.
    The hound is a typical Irish wolfhound, a huge and courageous breed; at this time the dog may have been more of a cross between wolfhounds, deerhounds and even mastiffs...this one is pure wolfhound. Sculpting a mastiff/deer-wolf hound cross sounded a bit much to me...
    Happy St. Patrick's Day! To all you Hibernian chieftains especially!
    Comments welcome!
