You may remember this face from a long time ago. I started with a piece of African purple heart wood. Well I reworked this face many times until I finally liked it. The design on the face, which was chiseled by hand, was influenced by tribal markings from Nepal and Aboriginal tribal markings from Australia. The hood was craved from pear wood and then stained with acrylic paint. The face is the real color of the wood. African purple heart is one of the hardest woods I’ve ever worked with.
