Cat eyes open

Project Owner: Susan Dinkelacker
Type of Wood: Totara
Finish: unfinished
Dimensions: 160mmx140mmx100mm


This is my second attempt of a carving in the round - this time of a Burmese Cat with eyes open and waving one paw (a Maneki-neko that is beckoning in a european way.) The pupils of the cat's eyes were hollowed out but didn't look right until a friend recommended adding a tiny white spot to each eye, which I did by means of a toothpick, and suddenly the carving looked more alive.

This project was done by a carver with less than 12 months experience.
