While the Maharajah sleeps, his slipper is gently caressed by satin splendour duly protected by a bevy of beautiful harem girls. Safe in the hands of these beautiful women the slipper awaits another day.

Carved from the best amur cherry that the maharajah could afford, the slipper shows the grain well. Finished with a wipe on poly, the slipper shows simplicity, elegance and beauty.

I have been known to tell a few believable stories! Enjoy!

Way cool. Everyone needs some fantasy and imagination in their life. OH, and “believable” stories as well. LOL

Roman, that is one really cool piece of foot wear! A very light hearted piece. Love the name… love the shoe. Nice work!!!

Like fairy tale piece Roman, conjures up thoughts of a flying carpet awaiting in the background, :)

Love all of Roman’s projects. I’ve had the privilege to watch Roman work and explain how to make the wood speak and listen to what it tells you. Beautiful carving at every step. Fantastic. Has the Genie appeared yet?
