Looks like someone that I once knew.. just kiddingLooks like the carving was inside the wood all along and you just released it.And welcome to the nut house.

Thanks for your comments,A lot of people recognized in him (it) as some one they knew. Once, when it was in an exhibition, a lady shouted to her husband to come fast, and asked him with a lot of excitement: “isn’t it my uncle Jacob?” and in another case a person hold his head with two hands and said surprisingly to his friend ” this is my father”. Actual, it is a typical west European person 50 years ago.

He does have an ‘Everyman’ quality. My mind creates a story for him that starts with his neck emerging from a too loose collar. And I am the only one in the world with that story. Thank you, Eli. Did you plan for the grain to crate a striped tie effect, or did you get lucky?

That is a fine carving, work of art. The grain of the wood worked perfect. Subject mater is just okay with me, but I’m more wildlife oriented, but you did a fantastic job on it! Really great! Welcome and thanks….................

Absolutely great carving. Awesome job. What wood did you use for the carving and what finish did you use?
