Excellent carving, Oleg, just as all your works are! I really do enjoy this piece, not sure why… maybe because it is an interesting form with nice detail and texture… and I love to cook with garlic!

Continued success for you.

oh man, it took me longer then I’d like to admit to figure out what the woodworking project was… With that said, excellent job :)

I did the same thing as Pawky
Didn’t get the posting at first until I notice the one on the right is a carving…or is it the one on the left :)

your carvings are amazing, very lifelike, and in all of them I am amazed how you get such smooth curves, either you love to sand, or you are amazing with a knife, either way, great work!

My favourite late aunt when it was live, tried to pinch off a segment from wooden garlic. And then long laughed
