I got this idea from a wonderful book on ancient Egypt i thumb through every now and then.

So much down time and searching for how to keep busy during this recession has its upsides. This man from Alabama is going to figure out how to sculpt and shape anything you can imagine and some things you can’t.

I got enough Heart Pine beams for 98 more sculptures this size. So stay tuned. And thanks for looking!

Fun piece, should go well with that cobra of yours. Hope the recession rolls back before you get at all that heart pine, for everyone’s sake.

Ancient Egyptian art rocks! Hope you do a lot more of it as nice as this piece.
