This is a small sculpture I made using bentwood veneers and using my new reactive metal paint. I call it ” Love is the essence of Spiritual perfection” . I use the female form to cast a poetic pose for movement and simple form. The head is carved from quilted white oak burl. All this and heaven too.

Beautiful sculpture! And I am loving your new finishes. Would love to see a detail shot on one of these. Very nice piece.

I am really impressed with this piece, great job! I was looking at all of your projects and I’ve got to say that you have to be the most diverse woodworker that I’ve seen.

Keep up the great work and thanks for posting,

I honestly though it was stone, some kind of granite…

Very nice.

Lovely piece of art you have created with this one. A sort of Reflective piece to my eye if you get my drift AH.
Well done

(I too would like to learn more about your paint process / materials)

You must have used Marylin Monroe as your model. Beautiful!

Very creative. Would love to try something like that. Would have to figure out the paint mixture thing….
Great job.
