I just finished the shadow box for the Open Hands I carved awhile back .
This is my 1st carving and a gift for my Brother in law ,My sister in law “passed away” In January , The Rose was on her casket, she was 41 and left behind two daughters one being 8 yrs old and the other is 23.
Laura passed away suddenly from a blood clot to the heart …one day she was here spreading joy to everyone the next day God welcomed her home .
Woods used = Steamed figured Cherry ,Purple Heart & Curly/Tigerstriped Buckeye
The hands are suspended a 1/2” off of the crushed Velvet “her Favorite color was purple”
The Box Is 18 1/4” x 15 1/4” X 4 1/4”
This coming Sunday would be her birthday and I thought that would be a good day to give it to my brother
