Green Man

This bloke has been a while in the carving stage, but at last he is here.
Camphor laurel 250 x 150 x 50 mm and this is the first carving that I have framed.
 The frame also is camphor laurel with a light wood stain.
The finish is white shellac and wax.

Egyptian Gods

I am in the process of carving a series of ' egyptian gods" to be buried in a new dig being put together at the Abbey museum. Here is a view of the first 5 carvings to be buried in the sand this week.
All in camphor laurel about 180 to 200 mm in length.
The anamils are finished in boiled linseed oil and the mummy in shellac.
