A close friend of mine really wants to get pregnant. So I carved her a little venus of Willendorf fertility goddess. Carved from Bloodwood, which is used medicinally and spiritually for female reproductive health. The venus is only 3/4” tall.

If it works, keep it away from my house!

Nice job :-)

At first I thought someone had a bad day carving, but after reading the story, I agree with Monte, please
keep it away from my house. I hope it works for the lady who wants to become a baby factory. Thank you
for sharing and giving us a chuckle.

I don’t know how you managed such fine details in a piece so small.
