Askwith: Sandblasted Morta Chubby Rhodesian
Product Number: 002-499-0190
A streamlined, yet stout interpretation of the Rhodesian here from Chris Askwith, this solid morta rendition is a robust number to be sure, but the medium in which it's fashioned keeps it from being anything but cumbersome. To my eye, this fellow hearkens back to a shape fashioned only once some years ago by Adam Davidson, lovingly dubbed the "McDonald Bulldog" (despite it actually being a Rhodesian). Its popularity rose however, with a number of artisans trying their hand at rendering their own iterations of the form, and if you were to Google the shape's name, you'd find a number of different examples. And despite this fellow's substantial proportions, it's still fairly compact, at less than five inches' total length, and housing a pretty narrow chamber to boot.
