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

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.
