Thank you for the kind words; it's nice to find so many animal lovers here. Believe me, the animals deserve it!

Today I would like to introduce you to another breed of cattle that i once again start with a bull. The Chianina is an Italian breed of cattle, formerly principally a draught breed, now raised mainly for beef. It is the largest and one of the oldest cattle breeds in the world. It originates in the area of the Valdichiana, from which it takes its name, and the middle Tiber valley. Chianina cattle have been raised in the Italian regions of Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio for at least 2200 years. Columella, writing in his "De Re Rustica, Liber Sextus" about types of oxen in about 55 AD, says "Umbria vastos et albos ..." (VI.I.2), which in the first English translation is "Umbria has such as are huge, and of a white colour". Chianina oxen were the principal source of agricultural power in the area until displaced by mechanisation and the collapse of the mezzadria system following the Second World War.

In the following photo i once experimented with the image editing program to demonstrate the direct comparison between two-dimensional scale sized drawing (left) and the three-dimensional result of my work.

I like the very typical figure of this breed, which combines elegance, calm and yet sheer strength. What do you mean?

The first wild boar sets are on sale. I am very happy to announce this. I decided to pack two sets of three figures each and offer the boar as a single figure.

But the pigs aren't the only news. I have found some time to sculpt again and built some new beasts. First, the already introduced Chianina bull has been improved a bit; especially the front legs i had not really liked. Now he looks like this:

The male giraffe was completely new sculpted. He's a true giant, yet only 6 cm (2.4 ") high. I think the giraffe's gait has something very deliberate and majestic. I tried to reproduce that expression in my figurine. Did it work?

Agree with Paul! That bull looks much better now! Give him a couple of cows and you don't have sculpt their offspring. I am not certain about the giraffe, but I'm not an expert.
