    One of the final tasks was to sign the carving on the back. This time I included Escher's logo.

    "This is essentially the completed project", come on, there has got to be more
    What a sense of pride this project must give you! Your time and effort certainly came to the forefront.

    Well done, Phil! Quite the project, nicely executed and certainly a show stopper...if it was on display in a gallery, it would be impossible to walk past this without stopping.

    Another outstanding work pallin ! The complex detail had to be a challenge took a real craftsman.

    This is essentially the completed project. Just finishing my "signature" on the back. It is 26" x 15" Poplar & Black Walnut, based on a 1938 woodcut by M. C. Escher called "Day & Night"

    I often get slowed down near the end of big projects like this by the fear that I'll do something that ruins it. This carving has a lot of complexity and multiple finishing methods on different parts. I can think through the final steps, but it also brings up possible mistakes.
    I'll finish it soon. Phil

    There are a few details to add around the villages - mostly field textures. Then the flying birds at the upper left and upper right will get some contrasting details - feather outlines, eyes & beaks. Nearly done.
