I came upon this interesting piece of tree branch and went looking to see what image it was hiding. This was my first effort at tree carving and I think I found a self portrait of my time in the far north of northern Manitoba, Canada. The second carving, Old man in the forest, is not my work but is my inspiration to be more successful. This piece was brought to me by my son-in-law & daughter after their trip to Germany. I am in awe of the carving ability and insite as to what was hiding in the root.

Perception is intentional, which is why we see figures in passing clouds. Yours is quite private though there is semi realism in your carving, enough to take it beyond pure abstraction into a good memory and meaning that others can partly see. Rather good un-hiding I would say.
