Gotsky, Character in Book Series



Optimized-IMG_8116 Optimized-IMG_8118 This face is carved from a whale ear bone.  Gotsky is a character in my book series, “Voice of the Ancients.”  It is mounted on two pieces of ebony, by Tony Pope.  I carved it when I was living in Wrangell, Alaska. 

It is 9″ x 3.5″ x 4″  Carving whale ear bones is hard work.  It is the densest bone in a mammal, and it smells really bad!  It is also brittle, but I love doing it!
