Fantastic Job! Wonderful likeness. The work actually seems to emote Gandhi’s constant tired look and at the same time his happiness.

Love your work!

I’ve always said that with enough power tools and patience, anyone (myself included) can build furniture. Your work is an example of someone with true artistic ability.

What a wonderful subject to carve; a man who’s peaceful life spent in service, one who lived a lifetime that is worthy of being exemplified! Well done!

WOW! Very impressive! I agree with the furniture/art comment, this is a whole different level of skill.
