Cedar of Lebanon
This began as an inquiry for a custom order. My fees are relatively high for custom work because generally that is where the money is most generous since it is usually commissioned by local and state agencies or contractors. But when a potential retail client asks, I try to find a way to do it, whether it be by way of compromise to keep cost down, or take a chance it will pay for itself over time by adding it to an already large, yet still growing portfolio. This way she will end up paying about $25 for this, as opposed to many hundreds it it were purely custom, such as a grave marker, for example.
This carving took three days to complete, as shown below in slides of carved plaster.
