#362 Night Stalker, 2003
Boxwood
Eye inlay: Black Plexiglas

In the dark of night the hunter stalks its prey, waiting for the slightest movement
from the moth. The boxwood branch this was carved from had many knots in it,
and rather than scrap much of the wood, I used the knots as the basis for branches.
The raised texture of the frog’s skin is a Japanese
netsuke texturing technique called “ukibori”.

Dimensions:
3.6 x 1.2 x 1.4 inches
9.2 x 3.0 x 3.5 cm
