that is some nice carving !!
can you explain how you got it to that design and shape ?
what kind of wood, what tools did you use, etc.
we love handcrafted projects that have a story.

To me, it looks like something I'd throw in my burn pile but I say that about a lot of the "art" that I see in customer's houses. I'm sure someone would think it looks cool and buy it...the hard part is finding that person. I'd suggest start looking at wine bars, art galleries, and mental institutions.

There isnt much of a story I made one for my front porch and my other half wanted me to do one and I was interested in the cotton wood bark carving so I did a bit of research and came up with an idea and slowly chip away at it until my other half liked it I made it for her I used all hand carving tools and chisels and I think it's ash wood it was very hard to chip away it took me a long time to get it done

If you plan on any more carvings with a concave recess, I'd suggest picking up an adze to save yourself time. You could rough that piece out in less than 10 minutes. Alternatively...they make carving heads for angle grinders which are pretty effective too.
