Woodwose are rarely seen or found asleep so this one is quite rare. He has a calm appearance and would be at home in a quiet bedroom or sleepy sitting room by the fire. Just remember to keep quiet around him.
Sycamore with a dark Jacobean Wax finish gives him the impression of being an antique. This style of finish really does look like old ivory.
The shape of the wood offers a nice composition and looks very organic.
I use a standard household bulb (low energy) for the photos which provides a nice warm look, with a high yellow content.
This carving is from found/donated/recycled wood and was not cut to create the carving. It comes from Shurdington in Gloucestershire and was donated by my father-in-law.
