A dream comes true

It conjured itself up in a dream, so I had a moral imperative to bring this piece to life, but the execution was nightmarish.  I love it, but, no, I wouldn’t do it again.

Curl-over in wood — sculpted on a curve!

Everything about this piece was just plain nuts.  It’s one thing to make a curl-over, but to do one that is also on a curve?

The inside/outside curls that are also split in the middle and end up in different planes was really tough to visualize and execute.  Those inward curls also close in on the centrally vertical penetration, making working the intersection nearly impossible to execute.

All I can say is, don’t try this at home.
