Jim Kelso Posted September 30, 2011 Share Posted September 30, 2011 (edited) Some of you guys saw this at Ashokan. It's almost finished but I thought I'd post an early shot. The piece is an homage to the extremely distressed Little Brown Bat population in Vermont and New England who are suffering from "White-nose syndrome". Our bug population seemed much increased this summer and I wonder if that's due to decreased bat numbers. Anyway more photos will follow in a few days. The carving style is called shishiai-bori in Japan and all the carving is done below the polished surface. The longest measurement is 100mm (about 4") and the deepest depth is a skosh more than 1mm. 2 inlayed teeth in bone and the eye is turned horn.
