Imagine there’s no Heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one

- “Imagine”, by John Lennon – 1971

I have said it before and I will say it again, you are one of the best portrait scroll saw designers that I have ever seen. It is the first time I ever wanted to try one of these. It is really a great portrayal. I salute you, my friend!

Nice to see the 3rd picture. It’s hard to see the 3d effect when the pictures are taken directly in front of the project. Beautiful image.

Great work. When I scrolled by I thought it was Harry Potter. They do resemble.
