Dragonfly

I have started on a very ambitious project, Dragonfly. This piece will be mage mostly of carved Oak and Brass. I have made a start on the intricate wings, the holes have all been pierced out by hand (over 800 holes). I have worked into the surface with chisels creating veining and different levels. So far the wings have taken about 30 hours. The nest stage will be to begin creating a body section and hanging system for the wings.
