This is a Woodcarving done on Poplar. 22 Little Sea Turtles hatching out & headed for the sea. I grew up on the coast & love little sea turtles. There are also 3 unhatched eggs, and 2 shells. I didn’t stain this piece but added some acrylic on the shells & turtles. Then I finished it with Polycrylic.
It measures 18 3/4 by 12 1/2.

Interesting piece. Are the turtles carved into the main piece, or are they added on individually?

You always come up with a wonderfully original idea and presentation! I think you’ve outdone yourself with this one. Well Done!

Thanks for the nice comments. In answer to JayJay. The turtles are carved in the Main piece. I really enjoy carving beach themes, I can’t wait to start the next one.
