|Oak on a granite base
|9 1/2"W x 18"H x 10"D
This piece was carved from a large piece of Oak severely eaten by insects. After flushing away the infestation, the piece was carved in the rough shape of a hand. What would be the thumb, is the natural wood that was stained. The rest of the channels and holes were painted with artist acrylic black. The ball in the center is painted Birch. The undamaged oak is finely finished in a polyurethane/resin, and is smooth to the touch.
