Carved in basswood, burning for hair texture and painted with acrylic paints, this carving is about 13” tall. It was first modeled in clay. The wood blank was glued from 4 pieces of 16 quarter basswood and cut out on the band saw. It just cleared the blade guard. The carving was done by hand, using full size gouges. I frequently use a model to guild the carving process. The base is 4 quarter walnut.
