    Just to share with you guys this beautiful engraving of Dianas done my good friend Valerio. Just for the record a MX8 with this type of Diana and Fabbri ornato costs $ 29.500.00 USD. You can see the difference between Perazzi and this one.

    It amazes me the artistry mind it takes just to envision the image, let alone scribe it in metal. Awsome, simply awsome!

    I can only imagine the strain on the eyes, back ,hands, neck, etc.

    I can find many stripers that with better figures than the classic Diana by 21st century's standard. But, they'll look like, Stripers. Can't put them on nice guns. LOL.

    Marcello,

    Damn that's nice!

    I'm having a Diana being built, thought about having a note put in for "extra on the top" as well.......but figured if your going to make them look like strippers you might as well have a pole and stage engraved in there as well.

    Ok guys, they aren't strippers; they used to work at Pegaso in Long Beach Harbor.

    The lady on the sideplate may well be the Hero of Leander and Hero -- in this case Hero being the woman with the swan who was an acolayte in the Temple of Aphrodite. Her lover, Leander, died while trying to swin river over to her side. There are a variety of paintings showing Hero with swans around her.

    Usually you will see Ero together with Leandro. The engraving that is on the sideplate shows Artemide (Roman equivalent is Diana with Callisto, her nymph in a Rococo style.
