This piece is so beautifully composed. I love the way the border goes from clouds into waves. The longer I look at this the more I see hidden in the water. I absolutely adore the darkness at the top. You've captured the helplessness of a tiny vessel tossed in a tempestuous sea and a monster straight out of the legends told by old sailors. Really incredible <3

You're welcome. I also work with wood(sculptor) and know a lot of people who do in a variety of ways, but I've never seen something like this before!  It's a matter of taste of course (like everything else too ;) ) if someone hangs it on the wall or not, but it's for sure a very unique and absolutely great work! ...specially the lively layers and the small details. If the plywood had known that it once will show a tale =) (Smile) !!

This is amazing :wow: The amount of layers and how perfect they work together, lovely :love:
And a real inspiration for a project at school I work on. I wanted to do something with wood, and my teacher advised me to use the laser cutter for it, but I did not know what to really do with it. No I see it can be so delicate and awesome. Thank you :D

This is very neat. The change in colours adds more dimension, and the detail is impressive. I can't imagine how much work this might have been. The boat fits with the design really well and look at those teeth. It'd be really cool if you made a container under it, so it could work as a box top : )

This is...amazing. It's so detailed and has so much depth. God, I'd love to have it! I can't afford it, and you should sell it for at least what you ask for it because it's gorgeous, but...damn! Truly, this is wonderful.
