The Elephant Man

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.
