CAVEMAN was a recent carving project carved using only a knife to experiment with using the tip of the blade to texture the animal skin sleeveless robe the caveman is wearing.  Also, his face was carved to emulate a larger jaw structure to his skull and his hair is long and scraggerly to depict his caveman characteristics. 

Every carving is a learning project and every new carving subject compels one to discover how to carve into wood what the imagination envisions.  CAVEMAN was carved out of a four and a half inch tall  by an inch and  a half square block of basswood and finished with artist oil paint and boiled linseed oil.  The four photographs offer a visual study of a carving project that is “so easy that a carveman could do it.”  “Yabba-dabba-do”
