I got one guy I have carve things… he seems to like it. I started him with a book with many pictures of one way to carve… like this photo…
Now he is using a dover clip art book of mythological creatures from cultures around the world which I like.
More photos here showing this guys style developing…. I give him little direction in hopes he will find his own ways.
I think maybe sometime he will be able to make some strange totem poles.
