This was my big spring project .it is three blocks of wood laminated.I made a clay model of this first.I made my pattern from that then cut out my block of wood . this carving took 2 months to complete.
This . is a Moore roughout I dont usually do roughouts i like creating my carvings from the block of wood . I bought a few just in case my carving arm acts up again . I was diagnosed with spinal nerve accessory damage which affects my carving arm shoulder and elbow . Anyways I carved this for my wife Val the lady that inspires and encourages me along my carving journey
