this piece is arguably the most celebrated Conan illustration ever. The
cold-cast porcelain, hand-painted piece will be sculpted by Clayburn Moore, and
will feature the warrior Conan astride his horse, with sword and shield

Clay's artistic ability and Frazetta's stunning interpretation of
the character will end up as nothing short of f
The CS Moore Studio is also pleased to offer a bronze

as Frazetta’s Barbarian. This piece is limited to 50 pieces, and will be available
