    My god, but those are breathtakingly gorgeous! It’s so hard to believe that it is wood that bends and curves with such life!

    Wow – fabulous!

  3. I love the jester! It’s so alive for some reason even if it is made of wood. I guess it’s the style, it feel like it is moving!

  4. What incredible photographs. It’s amazing what master artists can create with their mediums. Thanks for bringing this man’s art to my attention. That is the sort of work that I could see actually keeping in my home. Of course, I can’t see myself ever being able to pay for it.
