Day II Geislor Trip Veiled Lady in Wood

The carving is always bigger than you think. I feel as though it is nearly life size. A lot of wood to take off. Can't approach this one traditionally at all. You can throw away everything you've learned about setting up the face. You work down to the folds and dig in between them to get to the face. Extreme challenge.
The block of Linden. Not much could be removed with the bandsaw.
First cuts in front of the shoulders. I started this on my own and Pascal stopped me and said "Start at the top and work down".
Starting to emerge by days ends. Off to schnapps tasting!!
