The Night Stag by SlayerSyrena The Night Stag by SlayerSyrena
I did this while attending the class "The Art of Spanish Colonial Repujado or Tin Embossing," taught by Maria Natividad. It was a lot of fun!

This was made on a sheet of aluminum with the embossing technique. A mold was not used for this but instead we created our own designs and used a sharp stick for making the lines and a blender stick for making the embossed 'popped out' areas. The black areas (called 'antiquing') were added by my instructor, Mrs. Natividad, a well-known embossing artist where I live (she used mine for the antiquing demo, else I would've added the blacks. The way she did it was brilliant).

Well done I love the muscle outline of the muscles on the stag and the overall detail. I would like to a bit more about the image as a whole. Does it represent anything? Is there any symbolism or meaning?

Thank you!

As for symbolism, I suppose for me, it would symbolize
the beauty of God's creation- the animal kingdom, plant life
and astronomy combined (always a beautiful combination, imo).
Thanks for making me think about it. :D

awesome, I didn't see the Stag until after I clicked on the link to respond. Why does it look like copper instead of metallic white/silver gray?
