We struggled for a while to find an appropriate name for this piece - the first yak I have ever carved. In the end, the answer was actually the reason I carved it - I had just finished carving a piece for our 2018 New Orleans collectors' event and I was debating what my next creation would be. I wanted to carve something I hadn't tried before and I received an email from an avid collector called Wanda.

Wanda explained how much she enjoyed the Treasure Jests and she had the A-Z of animals carved by Harmony Kingdom. However, she was missing a 'Y' and had been hoping for a yak to fill the gap! Well, how could I refuse?! Once I had found some photos and read about the yak and its history and evolution and how important it is in Tibet in particular, I was hooked (and nothing to do with the horns!).

This was difficult to cast and had to be cast separately and the horns inserted afterwards to avoid breakage. I also wanted the colours to be as perfect as I envisaged so I have hand painted every single one of them.

STOP PRESS: 25 of these lovely pieces have their saddle pads painted in green instead of blue!
