Great carving, detail is beautiful, how long did it take?

Wow, I like it a lot. Your carvings are impeccable.
Is there a story to this carving? By that I mean a story beyond what meets the eye here, and there is a lot that can be gleaned from just looking it. As I look at it, I wonder if there isn’t some folklore here also that I am ignorant of?

Your on your game

dont loose sight of it, you consistently push your barriers, and thats nice to see, dedication, perseverance and self discipline are the seeds needed to win at anything.

Stay focused and be wary of the road to stardom.

Thank you SO much!
Yes, it’s folklore, clothing, interior,all !
In Bulgarian folklore, have a many proverbs.
Here I looked with more humor to one.
The idea locked in this work is the experience with joint efforts to overthrow the little devil.
But they are so stupid!They trying to look for him on the moon,but he is inside them.
How closer they come,so more they naked became .This is their payment for the pursuit of an illusion!

In this carving have one mistake! Can anyone to find it? :)

This is very labor intensive work, it took me several months.
This is not my last job.
