I have carved this lettering for an intended re-working of my website. The lettering is also part of an automata construction to be a feature of the website.

How cool! With a hand in the photos the size is easy to figure ... really superb work!

Wonderfully complicated. Welcome to the forum.

Lovely lettering and the scene is charming. I really like the smiling cat and the grumpy Elf or Dwarf. They make such a cute little scene within the scene.

Fantastic craftsmanship and beautifully subtle variety of translucent stains and paint application.

Wow how long would you say you spent on this?

No way of telling exactly because I could only work on it intermittently over a period. These progress photos cover the period from initial rough sketch to video of the automata.
