This is a project I completed while studying at the Geislor Moroder School of Woodcarving in Elbiganalp Austria. If you haven’t been there, and want to learn from European Master Carvers, this is the place to go.

Completed with Chainsaw and Sanders only. Too bad I had to leave it behind.

Why did you have to leave it behind? school requirement or no way to bring it home? Very good carving job on it.

Just when you think you’ve seen it all on this site. Wow, just terrific work E.R. I don’t think I could have left it behind.

I like to know what became of your master piece. Did you sell it, or donated it? I bet we all would like to know the story behind it. Also what species is it, the grain looks very fine.
