This is my latest work in process. I got a short story for it. i got several old cypress trees in my garden, one of them was broken by the wind and rain.
I consider this work like reincarnation of an old cypress tree. I'm planning to do more wood burning on it.
as usually your comments are welcome. Sometimes I want to have more narrations for my works, to create some mythology:)

Carvings are great depictions of stories.  Some day I hope we read yours.
Looks very Central American for the graphics.  I like those.
Might you have wood in long enough pieces for a "story pole?"

 İ had some written stories but not about my carvings. I think it would be good idea to combine stories with carvings
I think I'll be able to find piece for "story pole". Thx a lot for this idea!

To the First Nations communities here in the Pacific Northwest, story poles are good ways to recall many legendary beliefs.
The story can be recent fiction or the stuff of legends.

Can you find carvings in the stories that you have already written?

I can remember one of my stories about rattle snake shortly the point was:
in this story the snake dumped her old skin every year, but she was sorry to throw it away. And she made stuffed animals out of her own old skins. The story ended badly, stuffed animals came to life and chased the snake.:)

No carving comes to mind immediately.  Can rattle snake do good deeds with her old skins?
The typical Canadian Red-lined Garter snake will shed it's skin, every 4 frogs.
