My neighbour has been a gifted handcraftsman for all his life. He has many skills, among them is a talent and a expert knowledge for wood carving.
He does this all through the winter time and has created really wonderful things. It is a science of tis own to find the figure inside the original wood-block which the
work starts with.
He was explaining a lot to me but I didn't notice. I do not have the patience it needs to sit there and carve one millimeter besides the next millimeter, hour after hour. This takes a special discipline and a strong motivation to stay calm, stay relaxed but very, very much concentrated and totally focused on the object. Here is what he has done lately.
