Snow Leopard Project - Finished

The Snow Leopard Diorama is finally finished! It is now in an almost 12"x12" frame. It measures exactly 11.8"x11.8"x3.5". Everything you see here is made by us including the shadow box frame.
It actually looks a lot better in the frame. I originally wanted a free-form diorama. But it didn't work as a wall art. Here's a photo of it.
I am pleased with how the subtle the markhor meat pieces are showing. I wanted more blood, but that would've been a bit distracting.
I think the frame shows just enough of the art work and hides all the ugly construction pieces - Dan was feeling very strongly about hiding those bits because he's crazy OCD.
The frame is made of birch plywood and oak craft wood. So it's not too heavy - 1.1 pounds. We will put it up for sale very soon.
