Sculptural hollow form turned from a root of a cedar. The base is made from a cut off from the same piece. I really like this piece, the wood has so much character in it. The base was shaped at the contact points to lightly hug the hollow form which looks like it could slip off, but actually holds very well. 
All comments welcomed and appreciated

“Broken Dreams”. Gorgeous and unique. Belongs in a gallery with that title or as a center piece.

Beautiful, each angle of view evokes different thoughts of modern and ancient, physical and spiritual, natural and man-made. Thank you for sharing.

This is one of the most outstanding works of art I have seen. Makes me want to go dig up a cedar stump. This is definitely a number 1 project
