This is a carving done by one of my friends back home. He started out with a regular board of wood and carved away extracting the wood which caused negative space. He even worked on overlapping to give the carving some depth to it. After all the wood was extracted he worked on some finer details for texture. Although this is a 3D piece of artwork, the back in not meant to be seen since it the purpose of this carving to to be mounted to a backboard. After the carving was done my friend attempted to pain the carving as realistically as possible. There are different shadings of different colors to help the piece stand out a bit more.
