A conundrum in the carving room! Plant against human! Who will win???

Had this piece of spalted poplar found in my wood box. To burn or not to burn? To carve or not to carve?
Notice that one side has been left as the wood came out of the forest and the other side was mutilated by a power carver. Is co-existence the final result? Hope so.

looks great. Nice to see another boot. Been relatively warm here, but it did get down to minus 10 for a few days.
