The Magician

Because some carvings deserve their own gallery.

Enjoy these pictures of The Magician.  He stands 24 inches tall and is carved entirely from basswood.  Dylan used a clay model to refine the design before starting the carving process, which took 3 months to complete, and required almost every carving tool that Dylan has in his arsenal…including a chainsaw.

If you’re interested in seeing how a carving like this starts out, and the progression that it goes through while being carved then you should check out Dylan’s Facebook page where he uploaded all of the work in progress pictures that he took of the Magician while carving it.
