As well as this blog, I also have a website with lots more images of my work as well as a few more stories.
If you like woodcarvings, you'll want to have a look.

Josef Dobner- 'Der Gaukler'

I just wanted to put a couple of images  of this carving on my blog, because I think it's great.
It was carved using holly wood in 1926, by a man named Josef Dobner. He died in 1972.
'Der Gaukler' means something like 'the entertainer' or 'the joker'. I wonder if it is a self-portrait?
 The carving is kept at the Belvedere museum in Vienna, which is part of the Austrian State Museum and is well worth a visit.  The copyrights on both of these images are owned by them.
