Sculpture - Black Walnut
This is a unique piece of Black walnut that I presumed to be a solid chunk of wood when I began carving it. While I was subtracting wood from the head area I broke into a hole, I realized that I had sculpted the entire head around an open cavity. It seemed as though I was guided as to the orientation of the head. I made one side male and the other side female, and it became a better piece because of the so called imperfection. I never do preliminary drawings for sculpture. Wood and stone dictate the final shape.
