This work was created over a two year period beginning in July of 2011. It is the next progression in exploring the concept of "abstract anatomy" that I was developing at the time.
This work is carved from one single board of two inch thick mahogany. Highly ornate, it incorporates a multitude of concepts while based around a poem I wrote titled "To Dream Without Dying"
Every time I design and create work I am trying to surpass the previous piece.
This work pushed my carving technique and tools to the limits. Creating the continuous spiral on the right side proved to me that anything was possible and that I could create works more technical than any advanced machine.

I am immensely proud of this work. It glows. It breathes. It is jazz. It is meaningful. It is eternal.
