That is awesome. Your carving and that walnut is spectacular. I really like your dyed and natural pieces like this better than the textured ones. You just have that touch of bring out the inner beauty of the wood and it seems a shame to hide it, just mho.

Joe. Great piece! The walnut grain is spectacular. Love the carving…and the color is very natural on the head. I was thinking that wings would make an interesting addition? All in all, I like the combination…another great addition to turned art.

How whimsical! I think the names Harold and Harriet come to mind. Harold is the one looking to the right, Harriet is batting her eye lashes gazing to the left.

Thanks for all the feedback. This was out of my comfort zone, but I wanted to try something different for the contest.
