Ivory Carver

UNDER RECONSTRUCTION-AGAIN
     
Sitting Girl with arm over head.
About 5in. Tall of Walrus Ivory.

I had a chunk of ivory on my desk and didn't
have any ideas for several weeks. It was
good, clean ivory without cracks so I didn't
want to carve tiny animals.
Then I was eating when an idea came to me.
It was at supper time, but I had to start it and
worked for half the night in the shop carving
because I could not stop.
I wasn't really sure what it was and it kept
changing slightly as I carved.
I probably could keep it for five years and
find something to do on it but eventually, it
must be declared complete even though its
not done, otherwise I will be here forever.
Hope you like.
Dear Leonard,

Yesterday, a new lady entered my life.  She is at once, a woman and a child.  She is frozen in time, but jumps out of her
image to appear as a fully formed person who has people to see and places go to.  For now, she is in semi-recline, in
contemplation, even relaxing, in the very best presentation of who and what she is.  She is femininity, plain and simple.  She
has been sculpted from nature—and is a natural beauty.  She is playful and serene and wants for nothing.  Her arms are
displayed lazily about, her feet are tucked in beneath her, and she is comfortable.  Lavish hair flows down her back and
around her face, framing her gaze upward toward the heavens.  She could be in the middle of a meadow, before a blazing
campfire, or on her bedroom floor, just there, wherever she wants to be—but she is happy and at peace.

She is a joy and has taken her rightful place in all eternity, as all great art—Clarissa.

Thank you, Leonard, more than you could imagine.

Fond regards,

Wayne
The Raven Dancer
Me: Grandfather, where did the ravens come from?

Grandfather: A long time ago there were no Ravens in the world.
It was during that time when a young medicine man yearned to fly like the birds. He carved a large bird body
with wings from a black wood he had found in the forest. He tied himself under the black bird and climbed to a
very high cliff. As he stood on the cliff, he sang his magic song..caw..caw!
The people gasped in fear that he would fall and die when he jumped from the cliff, but he did not fall to the
ground and instead floated away higher and higher.
He was so happy he kept singing the magic song..caw..caw!
Because it was so much fun, he didn't want to come back to Earth and as he flew, he sang the magic song
and a strange thing happened, he was transformed into a large black bird that we now call the Raven.

My daughter Siobhan asked: Grandfather, where did the other Ravens come from?

Grandfather: Every time he lost a feather, the feather turned into a Raven.

I have asked the Ravens many times for their magic song so I could fly too, but they just laugh and fly away.
