The Devil

This is my take on a photo I found in one of  Ian Norbury's books Carving Facial Expressions (1997).

My guy is in camphor laurel 280mm x 220mm x 100mm and finished with shellac and wax.
Really enjoyed working on this piece (as I do with all carving) and I seem to have moved into this type of wall mask carving due to the availability  of the thickness of timber that I have access to. It is very hard to source large blocks for in-the-round carving.

This guy will now go to a gallery for display and hopefully sale.

Happy Carving,
