    Hi folks;

    A friend just sent me this link. It is a handcarved crossbow, the body of which appears modeled after those very cool flying critters in the movie "Avatar".

    It is pretty amazing...


    Best!

    Thanks for posting this Lightly

    That is in fact the long awaited Avatar themed crossbow that the Russian crossbow maker Dmitriy Krohalev has been bragging about. (Vladislav Pyankov his Mentor)
    ... Here are a few more pictures of his work > Link as well as his Mentor's work here
    > Crossbow.ru

    He now makes a living making crossbows and is taking custom orders, so if any of you want a crossbow that doubles as a work of art ... give him a ring. Smile
