Thanks Bill, yes it needed three levels mate. Carved it last month and yesterday was the first time I’d seen it without the scaffolding.

Thanks mate,
I had a concept sketch which was submitted as part of my bid for the commission. It’s loosely based on that but had to make changes on the fly due to rot pockets etc.
Took 12 x 10hr days over 2 weeks, had first Sunday off to recharge my batteries and drove back home the following Sunday. It was a fantastic job but was a long time away from home and the family.
