A Copy of an Ancient Russian Icon Corner

I was searching online some years ago and came across an ancient folk style Russian Icon corner that i wanted, very much, to replicate.  To this end, i created a slightly more modern version as a corner for my woodshop.  The shelf itself is poplar while for the trim and horses i chose black walnut.  The finish is a hand rubbed natural tung oil application; several coats and polished to a semi-gloss.
