I saw the progress photos of this in another thread and thought how wonderful it is that you are giving an older piece a new life! It turned out beautifully, Ayin! Not only do I love the colors and feet ( stability!) but seeing parts of the former piece give it a sense of history, as if the image evolved over time.
Thank you CaliAnn and Donna. How nice of you both to say. I never know how I feel about a piece when I'm first done with it. I tend to start liking it (or not) after a few days of not looking at it. The compliments sure help though!
