Genghis khan

I came across a photo of a bronze plaque of Genghis Khan in a back issue of National Geographic.
The face appealed to me with  such strong character  showing through  that I wanted to try my version of this man of history.
My piece is from White Beech, my number 1 carving timber, and is 240 mm x 200 mm x 90 mm deep.
Finished with Organoil Danish oil and Ubueat wax.

Very much enjoyed this carving and I am happy with the finished result.

Until next time ,happy carving,

  1. Looks great! I've never carved in beech before..but it looks like it stains up nicely.
