Evolution of Mammals 3D carved book art by Linda Apple

https://www.etsy.com/listing/209117779/evolution-of-mammals-vintage-handcarved

https://www.etsy.com/listing/209117779/evolution-of-mammals-vintage-handcarved

"Evolution of the Mammals" - sold
8.50" x 11"x 1" Book Art
 

CLICK HERE to see more in my Etsy Shop
 
If you love animals, you might enjoy this one~
Colorful images create a 3D look into "Evolution of the Mammals".
First it is sealed shut and then, using delicate knives,scissors, and tweezers,
I carve into into the book, one page at a time, to reveal its hidden treasures.
Nothing is moved from its original location in the book. It takes a lot of time, patience and a steady hand but the end result is a detailed 3D view of the inside and "new" life to an old outdated and unwanted book.
A clear glass panel is placed under the front cover to protect it from the elements. There is a notched hanger on the back so it can be hung on the wall or placed in a small book stand.

I love books! This is about the old outdated and unwanted books that even
the bookstores won't take. You know the ones... the yard sale, thrift store, can't sell books.
Like most of you... I have them and decided to give them new life.
It takes a very steady hand and lots of time & patience but I really enjoy the adventure.

Peter and the Wolf original art doll sculpture



"On a High Note"
15" x 8" Art Doll Sculpture

This is a fun "Peter and the Wolf" piece for a client who gave 

me a lot of freedom to create and surprise her. 
She plays the french horn, loves the Peter and the Wolf music,
humor,animals and fantasy.


The wolf can sit on the box frame or stand. The box is an 8"square
that was suppose to be for a shelf on the wall. The forest in the box
are branches from my tree and I inserted a little boy playing
the french horn. A painting on canvas creates the background.
                If the wolf is sitting on the base, it can hang on the wall.
           I really had a lot of fun doing this piece and I am happy to say.....
                                               she loved it!!
