Happy, happy, happy. These give you a nice warm feeling inside. They also are alive with character. Thanks for posting.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. Very nice and interesting carvings. Is there any special meaning behind the
carvings? The first couple almost look like a grandmother and grandfather arriving at their kids kitchen
door with just a little food to make sure they are welcome and the grandchildren are well fed, but I
have been told that I have an overactive imagination at times.

Лида, великолепная работа! Очень живые и добрые персонажи.
Lidia, it’s wonderful! Characters are looking very alive and very kind.

on the first picture-Babushka arrived from forest (taiga, of coarse) with basket full of squirrel’s bread. Her son, Kuzma, meet her on the riverside. Grandfather is on the second picture, hi is a night watchman of the village clubhouse. Their granddaughter, Kuzma’s child Mashenka is waiting them home, trying to put Misha (Siberian Teddy-Bear) to sleep.

Bluepine38, thank you for you comments! My imagination is “overactive” too and is aimed to awaken imagination of those, who look at my works and I suppose that my aim is achieved! I like russian fairy tales they are rich in colourful characters, sometimes I borrow my inspiration from those tales, sometimes new characters born in my head.

Brilliant carvings. Do you use hand tools only or have you plug-in one as well?

Lidiya, these are simply gorgeous carvings. The ability to reveal what is hidden inside the wood is a gift that I greatly enjoy seeing expressed. Thanks for sharing.

I love your carving; welcome to Lumberjocks.

Dear Murch, thank you for your question, I use only hand-tools in my works trying to carry the old traditions of carving.
