Holy crap. That is an amazing piece, Gerhard!


Very gripping. It absolutely captures the pathos you were looking for, in my opinion. I studied Poe's work and I think you've captured the dark, stark, twisted, yet beautiful flavor of that particular poem.


And, what a very nice touch the feather is!


This is the kind of piece with layers of meaning and subtlety that makes it a joy to own. Something you can examine a thousand times and then on the 1,001th examination, notice a new layer of meaning.


This is an inspiring and humbling piece for me to view. Thank you for sharing it.




"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly." -- Theodore Roosevelt

“Years ago I recognized my kinship with all living things, and I made up my mind that I was not one bit better than the meanest on the earth. I said then and I say now, that while there is a lower class, I am in it; while there is a criminal element, I am of it; while there is a soul in prison, I am not free.” E. V. Debs

Bravo sir, I love that knife. What an imaginative success, it can't have been easy. I find it overall a haunting work.

Please come and waste some otherwise perfectly good time, looking at my knives!
