Hunting Dagger

  • Dated: early 19th century
  • Culture: Russian
  • Medium: steel (blade), agate (handle), nielloed-silver (mounts), green dyed lizard skin (scabbard)
  • Measurements: overall length: 14 1/4”; blade length: 9 3/4”

The Russian single-edged hunting dagger has an octagonal-form handle crafted of solid polished agate displaying patterning. The nielloed silver mounts adorn the pommel, bolster and the scabbard and feature various hunting scenes executed in great detail. There are narrow fullers along the back edge of both sides of the blade. The scabbard is sheathed in dyed green lizard skin.

The Aftershocks
medium.com

I was asked to create a .gif of a house interior during an earthquake. The article chronicles the controversial aftermath of the devastating quake that happened in L’Aquila, Italy in 2009. I wanted to capture the movement of the “tremors” before the full-on earthquake, although this tremor is infinite, never resolving.
This image and the all the animation was made in Photoshop. thanks AD Erich Nagler!
