Pyro -Art Piece : 'Family Tree'

This lovely piece of pyracantha has all the characteristic lumps and bumps!
The piece fits nicely into the palm of my hand.
The design continues into the base of the wood slice.
'To thine own self be true'

Just room enough for a small bumble bee...
I've just completed this design on Pyracantha, which was commissioned by a customer who requested a tree design, to include these creatures representing members of the family..together with the family motto 'To thine own self be True'.
  This is a good chunky piece of my favourite pyracantha wood, with lovely bark markings and all the usual knobbles which characterize the wood! My design flows with the wood shape and covers all exposed  areas .
