This is my recent relief carving. Since the wood was brittle and of uneven grain, I designed this simple pattern. I just wanted to see how easy it is to carve this wood before trying something more complex.
What I intended to depict is movement in otherwise static carving. Here a monk is shown to be gradually bowing down to his master in three steps.
Wood : Some wild thorny tree
Stain: Teak wood
Finish : Polyurethane Matt
PS: The image is a bit grainy due to some problem in my camera.
