"Just in Time"

"After many years away at war, a  knight returns home to find his beloved has been condemned as a witch and will be burned at the stake in the market place. He quickly rides to her rescue and in front of the cowardly townsfolk,  breaks the chains holding her to the stake and carries her away to safety"

The scult was created for Valdemar by Alex. I had to come up with a reason as to why she has a chain on her right ankle,  hence the small background story.
"they jeer and threaten but dare not stop this seasoned warrior"



and a couple of close ups......

They were part of a duel (Theme ; coming home) over at the Bennos Forum..Results HERE.
It was a 3 way duel, the other contestants were:
Peter from Peters cave blog
Suso from Gataskog blog

  7. Now that story makes sense! I felt that coming home with a girl like that wasn't that "knightly"...
