I love it. You can look at it for a long time and constantly find new details. Makes me feel humbled and uplifted at the same time. Thanks for sharing another masterpiece.

That is simply amazing… I have never tried to carve, but 3 dimensional thinking is tough for me. Any suggestions on getting started in carving?

I am too far by the idea to give suggestions,(I myself have to learn so much more) but I would say to trust to your inner sense, he will never let you down.
Everything is built into the process of the work, based on experience – error!

Haha, you should see my errors! I will try what you suggest and post them as the antithesis of your beautiful work. ;-) I first need to see what tools are needed.
