My SO bought me this beautiful stone globe years ago, but the stand it came with was a really cheesy gold, so when we packed for the move we got rid of the stand.
Behold the new stand
It’s a simple cross connection, and the elephant is from a drawing found online - I took a copy of the drawing and filled it entirely in black, then traced that to get a vector outline - detached the bit that crossed the back so I could score that instead of cutting, and finished with a tung oil/mineral spirit mix.
Thank you Terry Pratchett

That’s a spectacular replacement stand. Nice work!

It’s fantastic! Beautiful work.
I suppose since they’re holding a globe it’s appropriate that the
elephants are flat.

My first thought (political)
Oh no, more politics. If I did it they would be donkeys.
A great place for a deep 3d relief engrave.

I never saw the original stand but this has to be a huuuuuuuge improvement!

Nice work! Now it’s even more of a treasure.
It looked something like this one
…and that picture makes it look better than it did in real life
