Description

This is a hand carved figural portrait carved from basswood. It was carved using only traditional hand tools including knives, chisels, and wood carving gouges from a blank starting block measuring 2″x2″ and about 4″ high. It was finished with boiled linseed oil and this allows the grain of the natural wood to show through. She’ll fit nicely in a corner facing outward or will do well as a small free standing sculpture on a shelf or desk.

She was created with no drawings or patterns, just a free-form hand carving. I was going for facial features reminiscent of what one might associate with an Inuit or indigenous person of the arctic region of north America and I feel (hope) this comes across in the carving.

This carving, like any items that I carve, make, or sell is one of one. While I could carve another one that is similar, there will never be another one exactly the same. This is the beauty inherent in items that are hand made from wood and natural materials.
