There are two versions of this cutting of my grandaugther in her “Tiki” dance costume. The left one is on plain soft maple, the right one is on tiger maple. My wife prefers the plain maple one because “the business of the wood detracts from the cutting”. I prefer the tiger maple one because: first I think the tiger maple adds to the motif of the portrait, and second, I love the wood. I am asking you which you like better – don’t worry, I haven’t told her I am soliciting anyone and, if I win, I probably won’t tell her.
The other pictures are of the photo that I made the template from and details of the eyes and feathers, which were a bit of a feat.
Thanks for your comments.
