Incredible Carvings Mike! Yes. Just like Michelangelo. Veins, Pores, Muscle Tension, etc.

You have to have an in depth knowledge of Human Anatomy to bring out that kind of Detail.

Thanks for Posting this.

It always amazes me how far a skill can be perfected, but as Rick points out it is a lot more than just carving skill that is required to do this level of work.

Thank you very much for posting the link. I am headed this direction and it is so wonderful to see what others are doing in wood and sculpture. I want to transition from clay to wood, but I am honestly afraid.. why? I don’t know… it’s just wood…but I see this work and I wonder … will I ever be this good.. and then I think.. of course… just be fearless and if it takes a year… it takes a year.. if a day, its a day… but still some of the wood sculpture out there really is intimidating. LOL
