Greetings to you from Cornel,

 

He as asked that I post the photos of the piece that is currently on his bench. "This composition is carved from boxwood and the diameter Is between 85 and 95 mm. "

 

He reports very heavy snow this month, that trees and limbs are breaking and falling over, and that he is sometimes busy with clearing the fallen branches from their road. This part of Switzerland must be beautiful now!

Thank You all for your very nice compliments !!!

 

 

Mark, as soon as it is complete, I will show it here. patient is the big word for me at the moment....

 

Natasha, I saw your newest Ryusa-netsuke.....I probably bend myself lower :)

 

Don, dont cut off one of your best tools.....with ten fingers is so much possible :)

 

Greg, I think it is mostly a question of time, if this or that is in the range to realize

But if to be frankly, it is a little bit a bone breaker............

 

Dragon-dreamer, This is a wall-lizard, they really have a rather flexible tail, only my wodden

copy is like a frozen one....bad for my fingers and tools :)

 

Thank You again for the attention and wonderful x-mas days !!!

Cornel,

Thanks for your reply! The only reason I asked about the tail scales is that I'm personally very interested in reptiles and the tail scales of most lizards I've seen are very small.

Again, this is amazing work and my only intent is to help, not criticize.

Dear Dragon-dreamer,

 

Criticize is always welcome, its mostly a good teacher.

You are right, the tail of a living lizard is much thinner at the end,

also the scales. My lizard must be a little bit more strong, otherwise the free part of the tail

would break away. Thats my tribute to the functional part of a carving.

 

Thank You for the attention :)

"Finally I am finish with this "bonebreaker", I only have to place some bronce-ants into the snailhouse. The diameter of this composition is between 85mm and 95mm.

Carved from one piece of boxwood, the snailhouse is bleached. The snailhouse-inside is carved out as far as possible."

No words.

 

For once in my life, I really am speechless.

 

And eagerly awaiting more photos of this masterpiece.

I don't know how to say this --- it's beautiful

One day maybe I will be able to compete, certainly a standard to aim at.

 

So much that I would like to ask. How did you carve the scales?, how did you get inside the shell?, how did you do the eyes?, how did you hold it without breaking it? (apart from vey gently!)

 

Master carver I salute you
