Just a little something to share as it is St George’s Day today.
My dad, Norbert Stiller, carved this as a part of his diploma when he was, I think, 16. He said that he had an argument with his tutor about it as he didn’t want to gild it but the tutor made him. I have no idea what wood was used.
It stands about 4 feet tall to the tip of the spear.
