'Spirit of the Woods'

Carved this Spirit of the woods this week, not carved to order , just wanted to carve something like this which has been in my head a while....... i enjoyed every second of it knowing that it didnt matter where i was going with my thoughts. Needs dome oil etc and the base needs some more work which i will finish tomorrow.
This type of carving is not everyones cup of tea but it will attract attention at the shows i hope.
Grim Reaper next ....

Cheers Sloth, i liked carving it, it was carved from a very old piece of Oak which had been under cover for 10 years, it had cracked naturally and the cracks should add to the affect of the carving when i oil it

Re: 'Spirit of the Woods'

Have you tried sticking a light inside it in the dark yet?
