I agree with Charlie, very lifelike. I guess you’ll have to place a mirror behind it so you can get the full effect at one time.

Thank you all for your encourage comments.
Hi Dale,
Do you mean to place a mirror for the picture in this site and can I change it now? Or in order to show it in life?
I have another project with 2 side significant views and I put it on a stand with a carousel – you may see this project –”The Whisper and its Meaning” located 2 projects before this one.
The new one project I put on a stand in the middle of a hall, so you may go around.
Thanks
Eli

Eli, I was talking about for permanent display in real life, not on here. Going around to the other side is good too, as long as viewers get to see both sides because they are both great. On the first side shown, the side with just the head, how did you do the eyes, if you don’t mind sharing. Mostly on carved eyes, I see them carved inward to use shadow to darken the center of the eye, but the eyes on this appear to shine and sparkle like real eyes.

Hi Dale,
I have no problem to share my knowledge and I would like to take this opportunity to credit my master Hans Kantor, in whose studio in Tel Aviv I learnt.

I used 3 different methods to carve an eye:
A. Please look at my previous project called “Moishale”, in this case I carved the cornea/ iris – the colored area in the eye by carving the cornea area 1 millimeter deeper and drilled a hole to represent the pupil where the shadow makes it dark (by the way one of Moishale’s eye is blinking)
B. Please look at my previous project called “The prayer”, in this case I drilled the cornea area and left the pupil at the same height level as the eyeball. The result is that the cornea is black by the shadow and the pupil is bright like the color of the wood.
C. The anatomical shape of the pupil is circle, but when you stay at a room with several source of light you don’t see the pupil – you see the reflection of the light sources with a shape of something between a rectangle and Banana. So in this project – “Inside as Outside”, I worked as in method B – drilled the cornea and left the reflection of the light sources at the same height level as the eyeball. The result is that the cornea is black by the shadow and the reflection of the light sources is bright like the color of the wood.
