A real gem. I love this small work of art. I often think small projects, if they are special like this one, can easily be displayed almost anywhere. I also think small carvings are much more difficult to do with the kind of detail this one is done in. Bravo!

Yes , although not require physical strength ,
I dare say , that the miniatures are much more difficult.

Hi Mariya.

Simply beautiful. It reminds me of a contemplation piece my kenjutsu sensei owned and cherished. It was made several centuries ago by a master carver in Edo (now Tokyo) and was a gift from his sensei upon his attaining his black belt. Any time he had a difficult decision to make, he would cradle it softly in his hands and stare into its details, and the answer would come to him. Even if it didn’t, the calming effect it had on him was remarkable.

I envy you your gift. While I am a fair draftsman and sketch artist, I’ve never been anything like even a tyro at carving and always wanted to be. I look forward to seeing your next piece with great anticipation.
