Thread: Crest for a Priest

  1. #1

    Crest for a Priest

    Similar to the crests I’ve carved for the past Bishops I was asked to do a carving of this sketch ( done by an artist st the Vatican). The differences ( besides subjects) is the color of the hat and number of tassels. These variations depict “rank”
    i also carved the frame and as usual I made a template out of aluminum to copy the pattern. One thing to keep in mind is the pattern repeat has to be exact so each mitered corner matches exactly and is covered with a lead pattern as you can’t just miter this anywhere.
    Its basswood with acrylic/ enamel/gold and lawyer finishes. Overall it’s approx. 24” X 18”
