orang mom with baby, the story behind

some comments on my orang mom wth baby sculpt made me think it would be nice for my dear readers to know where this sculpt came from ,,,, actually, she is hanging over my bed 😉 …lol… as a releifcarving i did almost 5 years ago:

bas relief carved in walnut, the wood being 3/4” thick, the circle being 10” diameter

the strong colorchange that was visible when i fotographed it right after finishing has vanished after the 5 years, the wood now has a nice soft even patina,,, and, if interested, here is a 10 pages long story of the making, you would be surprised how similar the thoughts needed are, in wood carving, and sculpting in a 3d package…lol 🙂
