What a fabulous box, wonderfully carved. Is it owned by the Maori community?
Very nice work . .
. . the designs are reminiscent of the art of native Americans of southeast Alaska . .

SG, This is funny. When I saw the creation of this new Forum, I instantly thought of you and was going to contact you personally to tell you about it. But I see that you found it yourself and have already posted one of your wonderfully created projects.
I think this shall be a wonderful forum that highlights all of the skilled and talented wood crafters.

First time I have had time to visit. What a beginning!
Although I have carved a few boxes and things, certainly never anything this complex.
Did you draw this out first and do extensive planning or did it just "carve itself"?
