This piece is similar in design to a previous piece I posted. Same basic idea. This one has some nice spalt lines and a richer more golden color. It’s about 12” in diameter and finished in five applications of Danish Oil.

Nice job of finding the Polar Bear head in there and utilizing the spalt lines! Another masterpiece!

Beautiful, extraordinarily rich and rustic, someone said it looked like it came from the ocean, I don’t think the ocean could make something quite so beautiful. I really love the whurls and sculptured look.
