I made this memorial carving for a family whos child passed away from a rare cancer.He really liked superman so I carved the superman logo with his initial inside it. I made a collage of photos of the family and the person who commissioned me to make the piece had wrote a beautiful poem for the child,I laser printed the photo and poem and transferred them on to the sycamore slab with liquitex gel.I used a water based spray lacquer to finish the memorial. I made a video of the making of this piece and it explains more about This project in the video description.

Beautiful. I’m sure this was a very difficult thing to do.
Good on you for doing it!
