This is a carving based on a bronze statue in the plaza of the town of Ronda, Spain, up in the mountains of Southern Spain. The bronze is about 8 feet tall, and this carving is around 10 inches tall, carved from walnut.

Very nice. I’m very impressed with the smooth finish! Is it mostly hand-sanded? How long from cut-out (bandsaw?) to finished product?
