Horse Head, Six foot high,Beech
This is my fifth chainsaw project. He's about six feet tall, carved from a diseased beech tree that was cut down about 4 years ago. The grain and markings are stunning!
Various stages of carving from start to about three quarters finished.
Hand carving the eye details.
The plasticine maquette that I make before carving as a guide to follow.
In his home as a memorial to my partners horse Kye, and all the horses loved and lost at the stables.
