Grinling Gibbons, master carver

I came across the name of Grinling Gibbons, generally supposed to be amongst the greatest of wood carvers, this afternoon. Writer David Esterly who abandoned literature for carving after seeing some of Gibbons' work has just published a book on his experience.

More details on the man and his art here, also check the Wikipedia entry.

David Esterly's work is also very impressive.

Just thought it was worth sharing.
