welcome to LJ!! Interesting project. Great carving of the human hand. That is one of the hardest things to carve, trust me, I’ve tried :-))

This is outstanding! To me,this is about the variations in textures,woods,and shaping that are like a visual journey to the hand.Like a hike through forest and stream to reach a waterfall.Well done!

Wow! What an analogy. Glad you like it. And of course, it is also about the eroticisation of the hand as an organ of pleasure in addition to the erect penile member and pudendum. But I love your analogy! Thanks Andy.
By the way, I am originally from (eastern) Oregon but have spent much time in and around Sutherlin while growing up, as my grandmother was a 6th grade teacher there and my grandfather worked for the State Fish & Game (counting fish going up the fish ladder at the dam between Sutherlin and Roseburg). I have pleasant memories of the place.

Hi Rick, this project is very nice from the following points of view, woodcarving. Colors and it catch you to think about the meaning of this project and what you want to express to the audience. After looking at it, I could not jump to the next project. I stayed and think about it. Thanks you for sharing it with us.

Thanks Eli for your comments and glad you enjoyed the piece. To provoke contemplation on the work and its meaning is something that I try to do with all my ‘fine art’ pieces. Guess I was successful then, on this one.

Had to be Freud? I was just ready for someone to say, “young grasshopper, once you snatch pebble from my hand, then you will be ready.” So much for Kung Fu
