Hand-carved copy of my daughter’s hand at her age of 4 to remember how she looked like in this age. They grow too fast without pausing one moment i feel… I wish we had the possibility to stop time to enjoy these ages more :)

Basswood finished with shellac.

Thanks for looking..

Good idea! Got to hand it to you! We have some things with children’s and grandchildren’s handprints.

I have been told in art, the hand is the hardest thing to replicate on the human body. I have been told that Thomas Gainsborough had a very hard time with painting hands (Boy in Blue).

David is also another great example of hands….which some say is the greatest sculpture ever made. Mike found a way to make them look more proportioned to the body….simply make them over sized….

You did great work..

Thanks for sharing. A great way of capturing the moment. Beats the lines in the closet marking her height.
