This is a nice carving. This takes a lot of talent to produce something like this. As I am “artistically challenged” I have a great deal of respect and admiration for anyone who can produce art such as this.

Thanks for sharing.

Nice job Robert, I’m with Scott, not very artistically inclined, and have a great deal of respect for someone who can do work like this. Very, very nice.

The detail is fantastic. I so impressed when someone can see something hidden in a piece of wood.

Robert- I can appreciate the talent it takes to carve with the tools you used and the choice of wood made it even more of a challenge.
I look forward to your post thanks.

Talent is busting out all over. I enjoy the carvings and hope to get as good. I enjoy your project and take inspiration from them.
