Behind every legendary weapon is a legendary history. The R8 200,000 engraving concept reaches back to the roots of humanity and gives a holistic look at the history of hunting.
From the beginning, the themes of hunters and shamans inspired this design by Trompeter & Ritchi. The shaman lights the fire and opens the gates to the world of hunting. Animals from five continents emerge from the rising smoke. The scene is embellished by the four elements of fire, water, earth and air. The spirit embodied in humanity itself is the symbolical fifth element. Following this leitmotif, engraver Richard Maier created an incomparable work showcasing the finest of the engraver’s art in relief, bulino and scrimshaw techniques.
