Once again, beautiful work.

I’m not sure how to even say how incredible this is. Major “WOW” factor.

For this Carving I used European Limewood. (linden) The queen of woodcarving woods. Same wood used in Carvings by Grinling Gibbons in Royal Hampton Palace in London. And simple way, it is north american basswood. :)

This is just such fine workmanship.
The term “master” is overused here IMHO, but there are a gifted and talented few who deserve the name.
You are one of those few.
Thank you for posting for our enjoyment and inspiration.
