This is pretty much a repeat of an earlier sculpture but on a larger scale. I bet it ends up looking quite different somehow. I already have the feeling that this is a little more bunched up than the other one. I love this piece however and feel the idea merits another try. Carving it is following a path I know and should be straight forward. Several days of chopping to remove the bulk of the material as most of this carving is space and must be removed first before the more delicate work can begin. I must be careful not to break this one and remember to do everything in the right order and not to get sloppy!
