The Uffington White Horse

I created this for my son, because his favorite Terry Pratchett series is the Tiffany Aching series and it has a similar chalk horse. I thought I’d post it here to celebrate the Royal Jubilee - I seem to remember that Glowforge is in the UK now.
The red lines are cut lines, the purple are engrave and the green are score. They should overlay in the print, but I offset them here so they could be seen. I cut the small oval of med.basswood and the larger of med. cherry plywood. The magenta oval was done as a patterned line using the GF app - there are some Celtic knots. I’m posting the engraving settings because I wanted the hill darker than the sky and this is what I used, but feel free to use what you like.

Sky-306/6,270 LPI; Hill- 311/11, 450 LPI.

That was the first mental image the design evoked. Can’t help but think of the Nazca plains.
