Have you ever had your eye fooled? Where what you saw wasn’t really what the thing was? These saddles are carved out of wood with the intention that you think they are leather. The tooling is done just as it’s done on leather so that the artwork is as an intricate and ornate. Isn’t it interesting? I love how these saddles, done at 40% of life-size, look like they are made of formed and tooled fine leather.
