portrait bust

my first portrait carving completely in the round. this project ran over a long time, and began with first creating a clay model, then casting that in plaster, pictures of those you find here. ... and finally carve it in linden. the bust is about 2/3 lifesize, and finished with a stain (walnut) and waxed.

again, there is a story on my blog explaining how the different steps were executed.
