Not all of my art has always been painting or even pen and ink or sketching. This is an example of carving, a wooden shield made from found scraps of wood which were first sanded, screwed together and cut into shape, and finally hand carved with the image seen emerging from the frame of the shield itself. The wooden shield is a functional piece of art as it does have full leather strap for holding and is quite sturdy and strong. Even in this I tried to keep a surreal mindset, making the image just enough out of the expected so as to draw a second glance. And with the painting Sir Realist showing the sword, I naturally thought a shield was in order.
This shield is carved from wood and measures approx. 18″ by 25″.
