61. The Gift
This piece was originally meant to be something different,
however, the tree had a large hollow pocket which prevented the carving of the
original subject. As the carving developed the customer, Mrs. Arlene Chatterton,
suggested a number of good ideas to develop the piece into a more interesting
composition. In fact, the figures were really her idea. The piece you see here
is the result of that inspired input on the part of the client, for which I am
pleased, as I think the end result was quite successful.
11ft. Wood: Beech.
