This carving is done in Elm. I have been studying Michelangelo’s work and got inspiration from his work! I can definitely see the requirements for a multitude of chisels. I fought very hard trying to use a limited number of chisels and found myself using knives and developing different cuts to create cuts. Also drag sweeping edges of different chisels. I had a marvelous time. Michelangelo’s work is simply exquisite and his body lines and flow clearly show why he was a Master of anatomy and sculpture!!! Well have fun Lumberjocks and keep on creating!!!!!!!!!!!
