Each wood sculpture is hand carved from a single log; sculptures range in height from 10" (51 cm) to 80" (153 cm). Occasionally relief cuts or steel pins are added for stabilizing a piece.
The artist would have spent over 6 months to a year from the start of a raw log to the air dried, hand carved finished piece.
You must expect that these solid wood sculptures will develop climate cracks, both fine and large.
These are not defects but will happen as these are indeed made from a single solid log that will age and weather just as it is expected to. Seasonal climate changes in humidity will cause cracks to appear.
Please note; cracks that are present now will most likely be the extent of all cracking.
