    Although I don't have the talent necessary to do the carvings that are in this book, I picked it up simply to admire the work the artist does. It's amazing! The photography in this book is so good. With super close-ups, the author goes into great detail how he creates these masterpieces. It truly is amazing the creations he makes. A great book for anyone who can carve or enjoys admiring artists' work.
