In the front of this very detailed vineyard landscape carving, there are grapes, grape vines, and grape leaves. Then in the distance (far ahead) there is less detail so that the viewer can focus more in the front.
The carvings of winery will add a certain style and beauty to any private home or tasting rooms in any Wine making companies, for wine lovers or anybody who likes art – it makes the room more appealing. Customers will enjoy looking at the artwork while drinking fine wine.
This project was hand carved from a solid block of Basswood 4’ x 3’ x 4”
It took more than 2 months to carve this piece.

Wow, so if i understand the process correctly it seems easy enough, you start with a flat block of wood and cut away everything that doesn’t look like the finished carving?

Seriously though, nice, really nice!

This totally blows me away. I can’t even fathom how you would “see” this in the mind’s eye well enough to know where to cut. Amazing.

What a stunning piece of carved art to start off your projects with Boris! This is just beautiful. Coming from a wine area, I can see the vineyards just as you carved them. Perfect!

Welcome to LJ’s and I sure look forward to seeing more of your projects

That’s amazing! I know you said it took you 2 months, but how many hours would you guess?

Thanks for posting!
