Made of lime-tree.
I made it [of course] for my wife, a few years ago.
This is my very first sculpture, so it is imperfect :D , but I like it.

I may be stepping out on a limb here, but I think your tittle is a little inappropriate for this website.

As for the actual sculpture, it looks very good for a first attempt. Much better than my own first attempt; And my second, and third….

looks like something that was made thousands of years ago. Nicely done. I kind of agree on the title though

Just to (respectfully) offer a different opinion: I’m not sure that “titty” is an obscenity. To me, it’s more of a slang term for “nipple” or “booby” which is anatomical in nature. And, if the gent who carved this beautiful piece is a non-native-English-speaker, as the spelling of his name implies, I could further contribute the word choice to translation problems. At any rate, word connotation is a subjective experience, and it’s probably not something we could decide by arguing about it. In all cases, I don’t mean to offend with my commentary—just trying to see both sides of the issue.

The name doesn’t bother me but I wouldn’t have called it that. It doesn’t seem to fit the sculpture other than the obvious. I would have just used “nude”. Nice piece, though (no pun intended).

I like it! Here we go with title arguments again. Other than for some archaic religious reason what is wrong with ‘titty’?

Could be an Allstate Insurance commercial . . . you know, the “big hands” people, I mean the “good hands” people. Those are some big ti . . . I mean hands, Wiktor!

Seriously, you do create some beautiful and artistic pieces.

OK so wait a minute here. Someone creates a beautiful piece of work and all anyone talks about is the title.
Come on grow up here a little.
Great piece. Name your stuff whatever you want.

First, most importantly, great work. Hard to believe it’s a first sculpture. You’re a great artist.

Second, the name is a bit sensational, designed to get a reaction. Artists do it all the time. Maybe intentional maybe not in this case.

Third, substitute your favorite slang for male gentalia, say ‘cxxx candlestick’. Really watch the fire works. Now explain that to your daughter/granddaughter looking over your shoulder. People will get upset. Just a rambling observation from a member of the ‘itty, bitty titty club’.

That is a beautiful, artistic piece! Stylistically not what I would expect of a European craftsman, as it has the appearance of ancient African tribal artwork. But it is a thing of beauty.

Great work!!! I like this one a lot. I usually don’t like this type of art, but I really like this one. You also have a great title, don’t listen to these other “Boobs”.

How interesting. A year ago there was marquetry titled “Estrus” that evoked extreme reactions.
I guess with 12000 plus members now it takes a while for the new to get out.

I like the statuette
