A decorative top to a barge rudder
I have been asked to replicate a decorative top to a rudder belonging to an old barge which features carved decoration of a 'horn of plenty' which traditionally shows food and flowers emerging from them. On one side there is a plant with berries and the reverse shows a similar plant but with acorns. Carved in oak, the brief is to replicate the design but with some small additions/changes and to then complete with painting in similar colours to the original.
At it's new home
The carving installed on the top of the rudder. To see what my client had to say about his new carving click here
