Helm Crest

Finished just in time for a book signing and lecture tommorow!  Carving by Doug David, paint and mounting by myself.  The Chained Swan was the family symbol of the de Bohun family.  I portray Sir Humphrey de Bohun d1322.

I'm glad you were able to finish it in time for DoK. I can't wait to see the finished product in person either; it looks fantastic!
