relief torso by gecko-online relief torso by gecko-online
relief of a female torso,
made from claro walnut from Oregon, USA.
I was amazed by the dark color of the wood, which is the darkest walnut on our planet.
This piece has a wonderful grain and some curls in the correct places!

As a tree lover, you have honoured this piece of wood wonderfully. You have created rather than destroyed, and what a beautiful creation. The subtlety of this delicate reproduction of a very natural sensual and erotic female torso, while being sensitive to the woods natural lines, is a symmetry of intelligent and artistic delight. You bring many things to your work Michael, all of them wonderful to behold.

Thanks, Liam, for your wonderful words. Lovely. I feel honored in my attempt to align the artistic shape in my mind with the material I am using or vice-versa. At the end both elements shall become one piece of art. In this piece it did work well.
Stay well and have a wonderful Christmas time. ;-)
