Another one for mama.

Here is a statue I made for my mother in 1978. It is made from laminated 4/4 sugar pine with the exception of the hands which I made seperately with the grain running parallel with the fingers. It stands 21" tall.

The proportions of the body look really well done.

Wow, great detail! Especially on the face and hair. Also, very proportional, although that robe could've been tied a little lower. Then again, that can just be attributed to your own style and it looks great just as it is :)

She did. I gave it to her in 1978. She died last year so I have it now.
