That is beautiful carving, Mariya, How long does it take you to carve this one?

Wonderful work Mariya. Classic art but still original and fresh. You are very talented and highly skilled.

Thank you!
More than 6 months without the iconography!
This is very heavy work!
This is the hardest and most voluminous carving , which I am did.
I think I never will not began a similar project again!

BEAUTIFUL!!! What great detail!!!
6 months work-hard and heavy work-”not for my hands”
I disagree. You’ve got a talent. Don’t quit on this type of carving.
Remember: If it was easy then anybody could do it. It’s a challenge of your skills and your desire to carve what you see and feel.
Try “The Infant of Prague”.
Keep ‘em coming.
