Fleur de Sea by soupcan13 Fleur de Sea by soupcan13
- been a long stretch since I was able to sit down and do any carving, finally got this one done. I'm not sure why but this one has a very South Asian feel to me. Maybe the lil squiggly detail on the left(reminds me of Thailand) and the reverse reverse barb sort of reminds me of something you would see in Indian carving.

Carved from cow bone and lashed with wax coated linen cord. Will post the link to the etsy sale as soon as I get it online. 45 + 5 bucks shipping.

looks great man..do you use cylinder burrs to get the double hole effect where the cord goes through?

yup yup! good eye buddy! I used a larger cylind burr to make the outer ring and then very carefully dug in the inner ring....

Hey thank you Cannibal! It took me about 4 years to get off my butt and start carving....just take it one day at a time and start building up your toolbox/workbench piece by piece...
