When I showed this Michal Novak to Shane, I suggested it bore a resemblance to a "bent Dublin, as rendered by H.R. Giger". Its grand, fluted, arcing, rolling form I think would like right at home in an alien landscape rendered by Giger's hand. Novel as the design may be, the display of the grain follows tried and true rules: beautiful flame grain fanning across the flanks, and a great curving plane of birdseye up top.
