This is my best attempt at carving a female’ s face and body.
It’s 7”x13” made out of cedar wood.
Thanks for looking.

I think you did an excellent job on carving this figure . Really sweet. Made me smile. Why don’t they have stuff like yours displayed at Red Lobster ? We would enjoy the meal more if we had something nice like this to gaze at ! This reminds me of things i used to see in sea food places in Biloxi and New Orleans when i was a child . Nice work !

Those are very difficult firsts – especially if you don’t look at it in the mirror every day. I think it is just wonderful! Very polished – that is hard with cedar!

That’s a very nice mermaid. I’d say that you carved it very nicely and the finish is beautiful. Congratulations.
