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 kitchendoor with just a little food to make sure they are welcome and the grandchildren are well fed, but Ihave been told that I have an overactive imagination at times.

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.

Отлично! :) На них без улыбки смотреть невозможно… :)))
Can’t wipe a smile off my face looking at these… :)

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