Green Man on Tree Trunk

What are the roots that cluch, what branches grow
out of this stony rubbish? Son of man,
you cannot say, or guess, for you know only
a heap of broken images, where the sun beats,
and the dead tree gives no shelter


The stand which I -rather unexpectedly- finished today

...and here's the Wheel

As all the spokes of the wheel are contained in the nave and the circumference, all things are contained in this Self - Atman
[Brhad-Aranyaka Upanisad II-5:15]

The Mask of the Man is now nearing completion on its tree-stand.
(The leaves still need some finishing)

(And for an overview of all the associations which I had while carving.
