Untitled -- as usual

Did this in a hi-density urethane -- 18psf density, painted it with acrylic gouache. It measures 10"x7"x 3/4" (excluding mount).


I carved this from MDF (medium density fiberboard) and coated it with the bronze/acrylic matrix. It's 13"x3'x3/4".
My usual difficulty with titling a piece. Any suggestions?
I did this piece in 40psf Hi-density urethane foam and coated it with a solution (commercially available) of bronze powder in an acrylic matrix. I then treat the piece with solutions to create a patina and then wax it with metallic waxes. I call it a PITA process -- but I like the result.
It is 9"x9"x3" -- excluding the base.

Inspired by SW Indian art I did this in wood and mounted it above my mailbox -- sort of an Avatar to make it easier than a number to identify the house (I think).

I've not been doing much carving for many months -- that nemesis, Arthur Itis been keeping me idle. I did just get started a few weeks ago and this is my first piece in a looooong while.
