Very quiet looking older man, is he looking at someone with a key for his lock, or is he thinking about
trying to swap the lock for warm coat with all the cold weather you have been having? Thank you for

your characters have a lot of character. I love the way you create their expressions through the eyes. The great thing about carving is that you’re manipulating the wood with knife blades rather than saws, machines and sandpaper. And it takes more artistic skill. Sure is easier getting rid of chips as opposed to dust.

Love the workmanship a nice piece of carving, but I think the lock is for his wife’s Chastity belt? That why he looks so happy. Ha ha ha

Doesn’t look like he has much that needs locking up, he must be the lock keeper.

Cool carvings!!

How tall are your average figures Lidiya? Do you show them at galleries or shows? They are all so incredible.
