Featured: Carving into skill just seems to be a natural progression of how jewelry (beads) and other forms of decoration started. You have taken carving bone to a new level. The detail you use doesn't demean the image of the subject but it makes the animal seam more mysterious and a symbol of power. Fantastic work, i can't wait to see more!
