Description

Green men and wood spirits, historical symbols that link the forces of nature and humanity, have re-emerged as popular subjects for woodcarvers and other artists. This ultimate sourcebook for carving these classic figures, from noted artist and author Lora S. Irish, offers a short history and evolution of the green man and wood spirit symbols. Two step-by-step demonstrations, for carving a Green Man and a Wood Spirit Walking Stick, are provided by renowned carvers Chris Pye and Shawn Cipa. 40 ready-to-use, original patterns are also included, along with a full-color gallery of eye-catching and inspiring photos from Clive Hicks. Inside this book you'll find all the tips, techniques, information, and inspiration necessary to successfully create your own interpretation of this timeless icon -- in any craft medium you choose.
