engraved Cape Buffalo floorplate

This is a floorplate for a Winchester Model 70 rifle.  This part, in very simple terms, goes underneath behind the trigger.  The scrollwork and gold inlay was done by John Barraclough.  I engraved the Cape Buffalo in what is known as "bulino" style.  This is NOT scrimshaw (it's NOT ivory).  This is on steel. Yeah, I engraved metal.  ;-)  And I'm gonna do it again!
