Inspired by carvings in the choir stalls at the Dom St. Petri in Bremen, Germany, are these hand carved window panels done in 350 year old re-purposed TEAK from old farmhouses in Java and Sulawesi.
Zakopane in the Sierras.
I am the last one to ever call myself a photographer… especially in the company of so many very talented artisans on this site. I am a picture taker, and no more… But… I am quite proud of this particular photo, not only for the work done in preparing this marvelous carving for the Project, but for the result of the photo. No flash used here. Late afternoon light, in fact a setting sun…. bouncing off the snow on the ground. It appears to my untrained eye, that the light is almost emanating from within the wood. No alteration to the color in the shot. The teak is magnificent, and I love the shadows from the natural sunlight. Cropped slightly, but not much…. PR vonB
