Looks like someone that I once knew.. just kidding
Looks like the carving was inside the wood all along and you just released it.
And welcome to the nut house.

Thanks for your comments,
A lot of people recognized in him (it) as some one they knew. Once, when it was in an exhibition, a lady shouted to her husband to come fast, and asked him with a lot of excitement: “isn’t it my uncle Jacob?” and in another case a person hold his head with two hands and said surprisingly to his friend ” this is my father”. Actual, it is a typical west European person 50 years ago.

He does have an ‘Everyman’ quality. My mind creates a story for him that starts with his neck emerging from a too loose collar. And I am the only one in the world with that story. Thank you, Eli. Did you plan for the grain to crate a striped tie effect, or did you get lucky?

That is a fine carving, work of art. The grain of the wood worked perfect. Subject mater is just okay with me, but I’m more wildlife oriented, but you did a fantastic job on it! Really great! Welcome and thanks….................

Absolutely great carving. Awesome job. What wood did you use for the carving and what finish did you use?
