I don't think this is appropriate for a family forum. My 12 year looks on this site.

It looks like art to me. Your 12 year old has had the chance to see more than this.

Really incredible looking work! Can't believe how it looks so good with only black &Whte, with lines thick enough to cut out with a saw! Looks like art to me.

Although this is an excellent demonstration of artistic design, there are female Lumberjocks on our site that may feel different about "nude" art. Sean's comment is more derogatory than supportive of sawdusts design. There is nothing wrong with what Sawdust did by posting this. However, don't stifle creativity with negativity.

I think that is beautiful, as a female Lumberjock, I think that it is silly that there is even an issue. Would love a pattern in fact if you are interested in sharing. Nice work, Thanks.

If we all spent more time in the art galleries and museums, we would witness many works of art featuring the nude body, both male and female. If you expose your children to the art world more, they won't be so sensitive to the Taboo of the naked body. Because it is made taboo and wrongly marketed, the sight of forbidden flesh makes them want to see more. Educate and expose them (and yourself) to the beauty of art and how the human body is incorporated in it. This will allow the viewer to become acquainted and not disturbed (or overly excited by lack of exposure) by nudity. This is not to say that there are not issues with pornography, that's a different venue. For those who worship the Bible, isn't it true that Adam and Eve were naked? Shouldn't they be considered for their beauty and not for just being unclothed? I would consider this a piece of art that stimulates the senses because of the beauty of the subject matter. As a female, I can appreciate a nude female as being beautiful and if presented in the proper manner, non pornographic.
However, I could agree that many of the current marketing of movies, ads, videos, etc. are almost pornographic.

The lady she is a naked she has a no clothes! Maybe a pastie would keep everybody happy. This is kinda how we come into the world isn't it? Hard to imagine my sons 10 and 7 being anything but curious and if they had questions then I would answer them. Well done!

Nicely done! Very artistic. I'm always amazed at what can be communicated with just a few forms and shadows. Impressive. This piece is just another example of how versatile wood can be as an art medium. We should celebrate this as woodworkers and not stifle it for the wrong reasons.

I like your comments very much mmh. Nicely said.

Very nice work. Art is art, the human form should be celebrated and not kept hidden. If there was more celebration there would be a lot fewer emotional issues.

Oh, Bradford did point out, I didn't mention my feelings on the piece. Sorry, I was amused and forgot. Fantastic work, simple elegant design. I'd be happy to display it in my house.

Our nation has a big problem with nudity, but seems to thrive on violence.

Seems pretty odd to me, but … what do I know….

Nice job, sawdustmedic.

Ya know… You could take a couple of those Rockler cookies, use them as pasties and enter the new contest… Just a thought ;)

Beautiful art work but a tad too skinny for us down in Texas to hang over the ice chest.
