The 2016 Raffle Horse is being created in a Patriot theme to honor the election year. During this stage of our Raffle Horse, Master Carver Kate Adam, will design the horse and color schemes that will be produced on a painting canvas. Once the canvas painting is complete the next step is to transfer the image to a large blue print that will guide the carving crew into blocking stage.
This is the 2016 Raffle Horse in the blocking stage. This is where the horse will first start to come to life. The carvers will work off of a blue print that will guide them in the blocking of the horse. There are many blocks of wood that are all separate at this point. The head, neck, body, legs, and tail at this point are all separate blocks.
This is the 2016 Raffle Horse in the finished state.
