Handcarved, handpainted, these wildlife sculptures come to life.
Each piece is painstakingly handcarved from select hardwoods, sanded to a smooth finish and meticulously handpainted using specialy imported opaque watercolors. They come alive in a realistic representation of a specific species of wildlife.
Shadowbox frames are used to accentuate the three-dimensional effect of each carving. A double set of mats is used in conjunction with a complimentary colored background that shows off the natural colors of the particular animal.
The carving is essentially Bas-relief , the wood usually being 5/16 of an inch thick , but when painted and properly framed it gives the impression of being fully three-dimensional.
