Leafing Out

This hen reminds me of back on the farm the hen wouldn't lay her eggs in the nest, you needed to hunt all over for that egg.
 This hen is 8 inches by 10 inches by 3/4 inch and is carved out of jelutung. This wood carves very nice with hand tools and has a nice finish. This is a fun project with the different leaves and scrolls. It can be hung on the wall or stand alone. The finish is a brown madder oil paint wash and when dried was sprayed with Deft.
