Platonic Reindeer Late Stage Prototype

Tue, 18 Dec 2012

Part of my on-going project to make a festive decoration from each of the platonic solids, I've put together a reindeer based on a cube, presented here.

Looking at it, it occurred to me that the body looked just like a present…

I've done the photography so hopefully the finished project will be available to download in the next day or two. 

Bah humbug.

    Happy Christmas, by the way.  

    And to you too! Thanks Steven- RI
