The month of May

Finaly have found some time to post my effort for May. I still have a walking staff under the knife to be finished and will show latter. My carving has slowed down some what after the burst after Xmas.
Anyway this wall mask is my take on a medival Foot Soldier.
The timber is camphor laurel 230 mm x 180 mm X 100 mm deep.
Not overly happy with the way the beard turned out,  seem to have lost focus there. if any one has a opinion on the beard, then please comment with some advice for me.
The piece was finished with oil to pop the grain then sealed. The final coats are a spray of Crystal Clear Acrylic and wax.

happy carving everone,
