This is a sculpture I made in 2010. I had been keen on woodcarving for a long time, but never put it into practice. It was based on the tableau of my paintings. I had been carving it from time to time for half a year. The tools didn’t work out very much and made the process quite laboursome which was beyond my expectation. When the rough draft was done, I started carving the details, but the technique dragged on me. Then it was suspended. Until 2012, I started to carve it again, but occasionally.
When I looked at it again with new perspective, it did look a bit of puffy and uneasy, but somehow it was kind of funny and amusing. I haven’t altered it from then on. Later, it looks more and more agreeable. I weld an iron supporter for it, now it has become one of my favorites.
