Carving Commission Finally Finished!

I actually began designing this wardrobe many years ago, then the project was put on hold by the client for a while, but finally we decided to go ahead with it. It has been a long time in the making!

It is a 1:12 scale miniature – The finished piece is 6 1/2″ tall.
This wardrobe cabinet was commissioned for a very special project – Every flower and plant used in the design represents a tribute to the owner’s six aunt’s. The front contains roses, grapes, irises, violets, and lily of the valley

the roses spill over to this side, and blend with angel trumpets.
Six stars shine in the sky, one for each family member represented.

The grapes spill over to this side, which shows a pumpkin patch
and hay field under the moon.

The antiqued brass handles are a stylized leaf scroll
