A great project from red beech driftwood. Nice wood to work and takes detail well. Carved with knives over about a 2 week period, off and on. It represents a woman who does a lot of gardening and has plants growing out of her hair and arum lilies around her neck. An urban female wood spirit.
I belong to a very strong gardening community, mostly women, who are absolute experts on growing in our rather difficult local conditions. The carving reflects their indomitable spirit and ability to create paradise in rocks, clay and very strong winds.
