Here’s an odd one. I was writing a short story with these civilized centaur-shaped dog beings. There is a child in the story and I kept wondering what kind of toy kids might have in their pre-industrial culture. I came up with this toy Carter.

I made this from scrap pine using a jig saw and rasps. I carved the illustrative lines with a small gouge and blackened the lines with marker. Boiled linseed oil finished it off.

The photo shows what the aliens look like. They are called breehah.

That’s a lot of creative imagination on display. Did your end result come close to what you had in mind?

Pretty cool.

The only thing I’d change is to make the wheels rougher to look more rustic.

It’s not finished, but it’s actually a somewhat sad tale. I’ve titled it The Winnowing. It tells of the first contact between humans and breehah.
