Default Antique Egyptian Padlocks

I found these pictures of three old Egyptian padlocks that I tried to copy. What I thought were going to be difficult,proved to be quite easy and fun to make.
Hope you enjoy. The Dog, Camel, And the Elephant.

Great work Herb... the elephant is spot on from several different perspectives...very cool stuff, and no doubt, quite popular...

You need to give puzzle boxes a go...

Cool, Herb!

You should consider building a petting zoo. However, you will have to lock them all up!

I know, I know...I can hear the groans...but I couldn't resist!

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
