Turned Head Whimbrel


by Dennis Del Mauro

14" H x  "W

By studying the work of 19th and 20th century carvers, Dennis developed an appreciation for the manner in which the masters were able to capture the essence of a species and the likeliness of a pose with simplicity, grace, and refinement of form. 

Dennis uses the traditional materials of white cedar and oil paint. The only power tool used is a band saw to rough out the form. The carving is done with knives an rasps.
