Wood Carving

Trawling the web, I was excited to find these stunning works from wood carving artist Tomoaki Suzuki. The pieces are amazing, usually around 50cm tall and carved from lime wood. The detail, especially in the painted finish, is breath-taking...feels really contemporary; bringing wood carving bang-up to date. One day the Turner Prize will include wood carvers...mark my words.
