That is great.

Beautiful. I especially like the deep-cut, rough patterned background. I’d have gone for swirly water pattern, and yours is so much better. Very nice.

Beautiful carving, Steve. It looks to be about 3’ to 4’ (about 1-1.2 meter) in length… is that so, or is it larger?

I certainly can see it as a wonderful wall hanging. Thanks for posting it.

Thank’s for the nice words. This carving is a little over 4’ tall
