This would have been quite a sizable rendition of the Lovat, even if Bruce Weaver hadn't decided to give it the stretched-limo treatment. As it is, what he has created is a smart English classic that just happens to be almost as a long as my forearm. Of course, all that extra yardage gave Bruce all the more briar to show show off his signature, crisply-detailed sandblasting. At the same time, something would have to be done at the far end of things to keep the composition looking balanced, and to my eye Bruce's solution, a generous piece of beautifully polished ivory, worked out just fine.
