Spalted maple inlaid in walnut. Measures 17” x 11” x 1/2” and will be a wall hanging. There are several “faces” in this. The farther away you get the more pronounced the humanoid face becomes and the closer you get the more you see the wolf at the top. Thanks for the looks and comments.

Super. I can see 4 faces right away. Will have to keep looking. How many are there? Great work. This must take some time to do.

That is something else .
I hope you got more of this as I can see making a two door cabinet sort of Krenov style that would be awesome .

Every once in a while, Mother Nature hands you a real beauty! It is the role of the artist to showcase it for others to enjoy. This is a beautiful piece, well-made and well-presented. Thanks for sharing it!

Wow! That is an awesome piece. I even see the vertebrae in the neck. If that maple is bookmatched ( as it must be), your joint is invisable. Great job!
