I vaguely remember a story from back when I was a kid about an artist who made a sculpture of a beautiful woman and then fell in love with it. Well......something similar happened with one of the guys who works here. This was his first sculpture that he has carved and.......the photos tell you the rest of the story.

Me too!
Rabousch has been carving this sculpture for several months.
Every once in a while I would check on him in his workshop to see how things were coming along.
Sometimes I would find him just staring at her or even talking to her.
I would usually say something like "maybe I should leave you two alone".

It is an ongoing joke here about him and his lady.
He just kids back with us.

He is a very talented artist. Primarily a classical painter but recently decided to try wood carving.
This is his 3rd or 4th wood carving project and his first sculpture.
I think he has a knack for this sort of stuff.

Wow, this is beautiful craftsmanship. I wouldn't want something like that in my home, but I certainly can appreciate the guy's work.

That is really nice. I'd love to see a close up of the bottom.

FWIW I love the pic of the guy with his sculpture. Sure it's creepy. We're all creepy sometimes.

First, I stink as a photographer.

Here is a PG version of the statue / sculpture or whatever you want to call it.


At her side is a snake with an apple.

That is really cool. I used to paint miniatures, and this is like a gigantic version of that same thing! I love painting 3D things.
