These two beautiful carvings were carved by Phet Wiriya, also known as the elephant man. His ability to carve wood and sculpt with other materials is absolutely amazing! I was able to briefly meet Phet and his team of apprentices while in Thailand. It was one of the highlights of my trip!
The top image is a herd of elephants carved out of a single piece of log.
The second is a carving of the Hindu God Ganesh, the God of new beginnings and the remover of obstacles.
