Woodnymph tree carving ...Day three!

OK wood nymph or wood elf. She will probably look more like an elf when she is finally finished. I worked mostly on the head and face tonight. to help give me a focal point for the rest of the body. My partner in crime tonight was "bear" the neighbor hood stray cat who thinks he lives here. He's actually pretty well behaved for a non fixed male cat. Anyway..It started to snow tonight ( grrr) but I worked on through. I started with the chainsaw tonight, but actually I didn't do much with it. I 'm afraid to take off too much wood at a time. ( unlike chainsaw carvers) Besides the chisels are much cleaner to work with and don't make much noise. Well, she is taking shape. I'll continue posting the progress

He looks like a maine coon cat. He has really nice markings. They are a very personable cat. Your carving is moving right along. I watched a pbs the other day and they were showing two men chipping away at stone, recreating a sphinx nose. They were wanting to see how long it took them to do the whole sphinx. It was too slow for me, chipping out little pieces of stone. One million hours of labor they estimated that it took to do the whole sculpture.
