Great piece. I love those wrinkles in the forhead where his fingers are touching.

Einstein maybe?

That was my first impression. A great piece of art.

It is not Einstein, I don’t know him personally but found his picture in the web – he is a Polish library manager

Ficus. I have tons of wet Ficus lying around. How did you finish it? Love the patina. What I have is very light of color and featureless.

I finished it with transparent lacquer. My assumption is that as much the Ficus tree gets water, it will be bright colors. Less water, will yield darker colors. May be this one had less water. I carved another Ficus more brightness. Please see it in the following link Click for details
