This is a piece of 10” X 36” basswood. I carved it in a shallow relief with hand tools to a depth of no more than 1/4” as a personal challenge to myself.
The panel is the first of three panels depicting maiden, mother and crone.
The symbolism in this panel is of her youth, with such a protected and gently life within high walls without knowing of the treats ahead, symbolized by the dragon beneath her feet.
The two next panels are drawn out, but not carved yet.
