This is another carving I started about a year ago and have got on and finished. Its the remains of an old wharf pile that has disintegrated and been washed up on the shore. The wood is Australian Turpentine which is very hard and tough on the tools as it has abrasive compounds in it. Not to mention the sand and stones from the beach. The overall length is 50 cms.
I try to do the least amount of carving possible and fit into the natural shape. The second face followed this concept really well as there was a lot of character in the wood. The first face needed more intervention as can be seen in the photo.
