    These look like the sort of things that lower class people collect along with glass bongs and faux samurai swords – very distasteful.

    What a patience… Impressive.

  16. Doctor Sartorius says:

    This is not art.

    It is great craftsmanship, but not more than the sum of its parts, which is what defines art (among other things). A photo realistic drawing (or wood carving) is not more than a representation of the subject, and therefore not ‘art’ but at it’s best ‘artistic’.

    Despite that, this is great craftsmanship. Beats sitting behind a computer and writing dumb comments… duh!

    WOW!!! WONDERFUL!!! In my country, Vietnam, you cqn get such masterpieces also, thing is that the representations are different ( culture :p)

  23. Dawna says:

    Even using modern electric tools, these would be very difficult, challenging carvings. It must have required long painstaking effort to create these amazing works.

  24. Stewart says:

    I really liked that post, I am a little puzzled, and have a tiny question. May I send you an email?

  25. Piper says:

    You gave great points here. I made a research on the subject and found nearly all peoples will agree with your blog.

  26. preyavadee says:

    So look very nice.

  27. I am very impressed. I wonder how many people would call the “Gates of Paradise” by Lorenzo Ghiberti, kitsch?

  28. Beautiful woodcarving works. It seems that the carver prefer scenes with lot of crowd.
    Good job.
