Family Tree

This carving was made for the recipients 70th birthday.    It represents the grandmother and her 8 grandchildren.      When I started there were only 7 and they were all boys, I had them arranged helter skelter wise round the grandmother in size order.    Before I finished another grandchild was born and this had to be squeezed in.      I just found the right amount of wood for the extra child and finished the carving before another came along.    With 7 boys to carve there was a problem of making them all interesting so I invented interesting ways to represent their clothing.
