Yet another Punch

I have just completed this Punch. I have documented its carving with photos of each stage of the process. eventually I will be able to put together a tutorial on how I go about it. The technique I use is efficient and adaptable to any design. With practice I find carving in wood easier than using papier mache. By easier I mean getting a predictable result - although this doesn't include moulding, obviously.

I am trying to achieve a design that is both contemporary and informed by older styles. However I don't make them as large as some puppets once were because I want them to be able to move about and enable the performer to present an active show. They do have practical legs.
