        Sorry that I've not shown any progress for some weeks. We've been settling into a new vacation home in WA, visiting with friends, and pursuing other activities. I'll have something to show on progress soon.

          Okay, I have made a few shavings - still shaping the two heads and setting the depth of the floating hearts & spheres. I plan to texture the hair on the heads before starting the ribbons. You'll have to look closely to see any progress in these photos:

              Starting to shape the waves in the woman's hair, but still need to work on her ear and the hair in that area. The pencil lines show where the gap in the ribbons will cut across her head.

                "Simple" as they say. Yea Right. How about 25 layers of wood. slicing downward have layers coming out of the face - face 3-D and spheres floating here and there in space. Just a thought.

                  I am now thinking of changing this design even further - to make it a double-sided, pierced relief. This means the gaps between the "ribbons" will go all the way through the wood. The back side of the heads will be shaped and detailed. To give the final piece the necessary strength, the heads will have to have more connections than the single ribbon crossing at their foreheads. The placement of spheres/hearts will connect the heads to an embedded frame.

                      Wow, Merle! Now I know who to turn to if I reach an impasse on the design. Thanks! (in advance)

                          Interesting idea, Phil. How would you display it, hanging from a frame to be visible from both sides?

                            Pierced forms of carving are used on doors or divider screens so that both sides can be seen when opening or moving the panel, but sometimes piercing is used to accentuate the depth of the design with no thought given to seeing the back. I think I will still hang it on a wall and encourage viewers to take it down and turn it around.

                            Here are some examples of pierced carving on a chapel divider near Cambridge, England:

                                It appears to me to be a classic Celtic style relief.
