Wonderful eye for wood, most people would see a dead tree root, you saw a wonderful relationship and
brought it out. Thank you for posting.

How do you carve a statue? You cut away all that does not belong. Great work.

Thank you all for yours encourages comments.
Mark, Israel was blessed with a lot of Olive trees and a lot of souvenirs for tourists are made from Olive tree, like Jesus, Maria, Camel etc. At this case my sister saw a tractor working at a public place and took out from the ground two pieces of a whole root of an Olive tree and threw it a side (the tree was cut years ago and no one knew there a root in the earth). I came after few days and 300 Km drive; I took the two parts and cleaned it from the clod of earth which was within the root. It was a lot of work and I never finished cleaning, since during the carving I found holes with clod of earth.
