Back To Tcp With 'the Battle'

Recommended Posts

This is my latest Netsuke, this time in Sperm Whale tooth with black coral inlays. Size is 4.5 X 2.6 X 2.1cm. As with all my Netsuke to date I dont use electic tools but only use hand tools. Carved in Sint Maarten 2010.

This has been a subject I've wanted to carve for years. Neither one is in a good position even though the Giant squid has lost part of one tentacle and about to loose the second. A frozen moment with eye contact.

Hope you enjoy it, B www.skinbonestone.com

Hi Brett,

 

Welcome back! The photos are perfect for pixel dimension and file size. It is great to see your fingers in one of the photos, to give us an idea of its size. I am enjoying looking at the two characters, wondering who actually will come out of this mortal embrace. Very nicely done carving and finishing. Thank you for sharing it with us.

 

Janel
