People and Portraits Sculpture
I was expecting excellence (because of the descriptive pictures) and that's what I got! I Love "Thoughtful Man! It's very well done and eye catching. I was quite surprised that mine came two-toned, but (in my eye) that's what makes it 'exquisite' for me. The height and overall size is perfect. The ebony and lighter side are blended and done to perfection. I've also ordered a set of 5 elephants, and now, I'm Really excited about getting them! Actually, they should be waiting when I get home tonight! :) Novica is my new shopping place for sculptures!
This small figure certainly makes you feel something. I love it, although at times it does make me feel disconcerted as though it is not just a piece of carved wood. The intentional use of the natural knots/burls to form significant figure definitely seem to imbue it with a kind of "spirit". If you have ever seen the Treebeard character from Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy then you have the look and vibe down pat.
This is a wonderful piece. What makes this special from the artist is his head is bowed down and his hands are tightly clasped. A great addition to my collections of Buddha .
