New Art Work: Basswood Carved and Painted Unicorn and Treasure Box

Unicorn Treasure Box

Finally!  My Unicorn Treasure Box is finished.  It took about three months of carving to get this result.... which is still not exactly what I wanted due to rushing towards completion at the end.  Reminds me of one of my favourite sayings.  "Sometimes 'perfection' can be the enemy of the good'.  If I were to attempt to 'perfect' would likely not have been finished for a year or more.  So, I settled for "rustic".  That's what we carvers call something that needed a lot MORE time and effort.

Below is a video describing the details of the project.  Enjoy!
