New order. This is the old picture which means: ’’A missionary of the Middle Ages tells that he had found the point where the sky and the Earth touch..’’. Here is information from Wikipedia about this picture:

This picture was made from basswood; natural woodfinish using natural beeswax, size 15,8’’ X 23,5’’. Color of each picture received as a results of different light and different stages of woodfinish. The last picture is the original one which I needed to carve.

Thanks to all for comments!
Also, to Scootles: I’m very seriously about teaching, so very professional concern for teaching process. And think that it couldn’t be fast and short. I don’t teach groups, I take only several people and teach them. But it’s long and then people receive a lot of knowledge. I use European and Russian process for this. And people will know not one thing, but a lot of, and they will can to see beautiful things in nature and understand how to make much.
