Wildman

Artist Statement

Been carving for 40 years and started these half masks out old yellow cedar and 2 almost 3 months ago but this one is the first I have done. Usually do a bear or an eagle. Thought I may change it up a bit. Took me about 20 hrs or more to do, it weighs 90 grams and starts out at about 900 grams. It is the wildman and I do like the way it turned out. Fits nicely with acrylic paint and oiled.
