“POWER”

POWER is a sculpture carved on a massive block composed by a lot of glued battens of a Brazilian wood species called IMBÚIA (Ocotea porosa).
The total height is 7.5 feet including a base with about 20 inches (not shown).
The weight is something near to one ton.
I hope that this fist reminds to power, determination, etc., but never an allusion to violence, fight, etc.

Marco,

It’s so good to see you back on here after nearly ten years showing your incredible talents once again!

I can’t begin to wrap my head around the massive work involved in carving this. Where is this displayed? I hope it is somewhere that many people can get to see it firsthand.

Is Dilo still making fabulous woodworking pieces, too? If so, convince him to share here again.

That is something impressive. How do you move it around? Plus is it going to be on display somewhere?
