maggie's aboriginal art






inspired by the work of aboriginal artist kantjupayi benson - scroll down - i made this piece of work for a woodworking class i am in. we were given a piece of wood that was four feet long and three inches square. i learned to cut the wood into strips on the band saw - similar to the field grasses used in aboriginal sculptures. the head is made from a plastic bag full of wood chips from the woodshop. i finished off the piece with a maggie twist to the work.
