    I've never had such a winter as this year where I have been as sick for so long. Five bouts of the flu this season with bronchitis and today a burst eardrum. No work on Iron Man at home or the observatory, but every now and then I get a little reprieve and some rainy days at work where I have to find something to do in the workshop.

    One of our lovely ladies donated a couple of chaff bags full of horse-shoes and I found a very old and suspect recovery chain with a home-made hook on the end of it.

    Well, one thing led to another and things happened.

    I also got busy with the chainsaw, flap-disks, some files and sandpaper and made an ugly cut-off tree stump look even uglier.

    Snake is awesome!

    The stump - the first photo made me think it was the back of a parrot, the side-on shot makes me think cicada.

    I don't know if I'm close to the intent with either of them... but nice work, anyway! :p

    my guess is the carving is a pelican, the final shape of the overall stump looks like a butt rest (like at train stations and trams here in melb)

    Awesome snake!

    The carving looks a bit like a parrot sitting on a stump to me, I like it :)
