This is a relief carving – 12” x 15” basswood – of my own design. The grandfather clock has an antique pocket watch inset from the back. Also in the room is a pedestal table with flower arrangement, a cat on the window sill, and a sleeping dog. The view out the window includes trees and hills beyond. The watch is removable for winding.

That’s quite impressive.
My Moma had a table like that.
How thick/deep is this?
Painted, inked, dyed?

Thanks. The wood is 1-1/4 inches thick and carved to a depth of 3/4”. The carving was sealed and then gel stain was wiped into areas to be emphasized.

That is just plain beautiful!
The watch/pocket is a brilliant idea.
How long did this one take?
