Horn wrist guard

This is a horn and leather wrist guard I’ve just finished (for shooting bows). The horn is from longhorn highland cattle and the toggle fastening is bone. It’s fixed with sinew and hide glue.

This wrist guard is based on one I saw at the British Museum made from walrus ivory with a similarly shaped leather strap and antler fastening.
