The Lotus is one of my favorite aquatic flowers. It has been venerated in ancient cultures where it thrived ; Ancient Egypt and the Indian subcontinent to name a few. Carving organic forms, especially the delicacy of flowers, lends a challenge to my interpretations in wood as a material. This project employs both low and ‘medium’ relief carving as in the upper and lower panels, and in-the-round (3-D) carving as in the two flowers. A great project that met the clients wishes.
