Promise this is the last one of angels. These are just one foot (30cm) tall compared to the larger ones. The main difference with these is I have changed the wings on three of them. Entering this plus a couple of other carvings in a Competition held Annually in August in Melbourne, Australia for veterans of all wars and conflicts. First time I will have entered any competition.

These are not permanently set on the stand as yet and any advise, suggestions or whatever will be very welcome.

A very nice carving group! I wouldn’t add anything to it Bob. The eyes are drawn to the subjects and that’s what your looking for. IMO Glue them where they are as it’s a nice setting with the angles that they are at. You can see each one and one doesn’t cover the other. Good luck!

Very nice Bob. One thing about any type of art Bob is never say never. Next week you may have fifty people knocking down your door for more. I like these very much. What is your next carving project going to be?
Great work as usual.

Thanks for the comments, thinking of putting some creeping vines in the space at front. Nothing planned Rod, just need a break after this lot.
