Another woodcarved sitting hare - Micktoon - 12-31-2014

Hi everyone, I have just finished carving a second 'Moongazer' hare , so thought I would post a few photos.
    Its carved in Lime wood again but this time not spalted so easier to carve, its has varied a bit from the first one, mainly its got longer rear legs and bigger rear feet. Due to the wood being stronger without the spalting on this one I did not fit it to a base, I felt the feet could have snapped off the first one, if it took a knock  without the base to support them.
 This is the stage that I remembered to take photos, all the carving and sanding more or less done except for doing the eyes and the toes.

  Sitting next to the mark 1 version , there is bits I like better on both versions so maybe a third one would combine all the best bits lol.

  Well that was the last carving of 2014 , lets hope there are plenty more in 2015. All the best to everyone for a Happy and Healthy 2015.
 Cheers Mick
