I took a day and helped him, I sat there and fetched stuff for him, on this project and it is amazing watching a piece of the tree turn into a rock or a fish. I helped him bring it home to work on it and it was extremely rough (I will find some early photos) and to see it complete was amazing. He didn't take any payment other than some carving tools and spent 3 years working on this. I watched him take 1 hour to do one eye on a fish just to get it right. I don't have that patience. Thank you all for your kind words on this as I will pass them on when he comes over to babysit on Saturday.

That is beautiful work indeed! Any description I attribute would be insufficient.

Hello,

You can tell him that this work is also one of the most wonderful work I have ever seen. It blows my mind when I also see details like the water surface with the caudal fin of the salmon which breaks through - what a GREAT IDEA
