Nice one Lidiya. It’s gets more difficult to keep a happy face as one gets older, which tends to make many older folks look grumpy when they are not.

Of all your pieces I think this my favorite. Did you make this in 1985? Super job.

Lidiya you can see many years of hardship and worry on her face. A wonderful and expressive carving.

This is a tough one to figure, she could be an old sourpuss like my step-grandmother, or just a real great oldlady who has been treated not very gently by old age. Makes me wish I could talk to her and find out. Thank you once again for sharing and making me wonder.
