Hey that really is a neat and elaborate piece of work! Its desing is great by itself, but who would think itīs a secret container? - The joining part is hardly recognizable. Something small and precious could go there and nobody would ever find it there. :) Truly well done!

Thank you kindly. Your assessment of it is spot on; in fact, the write up that I had to do for the exhibition that it was in, talked mostly about the hidden potential, and the secret aspect of it.

Well, you know - Itīs no art to recognize something epic when you see it. Thinking of it and making it real is the tough part of the job. :nod:

the turning part of it was rather quick...the beauty of the lathe as a tool...but the carving, and final finishing took quite a long time. :/

LOL! True enough, unfortunately this was a submission for an international exhibit, so an anatomically correct Pan wasn't really an option.
