The Rebbe

Since it's a day of rest today, I think I'll feature another of my 'Just an Inch' contributions. This time it's the Rebbe; I only carved his head, as the original image was his whole body. I particularly like to focus in on a specific part of an image, rather than try to include it in it's entirety. I like to see if I can capture the essence of the image with just a small piece.

I find this type of carving the most challenging for me. I'm much more comfortable carving a positive image rather than a negative.

The dove is smaller than an inch, only measuring 1/2" square. Carved years ago while singing along with Tim on the piano while we waited for the sun to set on another Shabbat. It says shalom in Hebrew, of course.

Hope the day was truly restful for you. ;-)
