Yay!  A tribute to my greek heritage and my Irish/Celtic heritage all in one.

Awesome job! I just wanted to let you know that I featured this in "Realms of Fantasy and Myth: Week 16 - Sphinx", you can find it here: [link]

Wow--ancient pottery designs translate to pumpkin carving very well! I would never have thought of that, but it works, and works well.

My myth teacher would steal this.

Now THIS is a unique pumpkin. Still a good "Halloween" concept, but not cliche in the slightest. The detailing and exact design are very impressive--it looks exactly like the famous pottery, except yours is better, 'cause it glows! ;)

Happy Halloween!
:pumpkin: :pumpkin: :pumpkin:

Holy freaking crap, I'm amazed and beyond. Amazing work. I saw this exact picture (except, you know, on paper, hehe)

Amazing! To see how intricate pumpkin carving can be! You copied the original piece very well.

I love it! I wouldn't have thought of doing that for a pumpkin, but I love the greek pottery & the meaning behind the images.
