Breathtakingly beautiful…I am in awe and humbled by this man’s vision and skill. This is the most mind blowing carving I’ve ever seen. I’m wondering if he used all hand tools or if he employed any electric carving tools, either way it doesn’t matter. (I’m pretty sure it wasn’t a CNC.) Thanks for posting the link. It made my week!
