I learned carving during primary school and made some pieces around that time. I share them with you in some project posts. This is one of them.

The height of the whole piece is about 20 cm (~8 inches).
The material is walnut.
This style of carving is from Hungary, Transylvania.

An excellent looking work of art, & craftsmanship!

It will look much better once you add the finish.

Thanks for the nice comments!

I didn’t count the time spent carving it, but it took much. That’s why I don’t do carving nowdays but if some time I have the patience again…

Maybe it won’t have a finish ever because I like the natural surface of the wood for this type of projects.

I have more pieces of work like this. I am going to post them.

I agree that the natural look of the Walnut is best in this case…I wish I had the skills to do something like this !!!
