I made this and called it "TRANQULITY", I have done other pieces but have given then as presents, I still have this one, I carved it myself (No lathe) just sharp tools and determination. It is not flat, It is rounded.3D.
This "Painting" called "Oh what a Tangled Web" !!! , it is mixed medium , with dried plants etc, and it has silk painting under the collage, if you look closely you should see eyes at top ,middle. This was done on a large slab of wood, with the bark still on the left side, I had fun doing this one.
