 Please have you got the pictures of the inside of the meeting house? I would be very grateful if you could show them.

If I understand correctly, these are modern (recently executed) examples of an historical artform?

Regardless, these are gorgeous...

...and they're buried in "Off Topic".

Moderators, this thread should be moved to where more people can benefit, either in "Historical" or "Geographical" in the appropriate Child Board.

It's nice to see that this has been resurrected as it was first posted before I joined. If I had the money, The land I would buy would soon be planted after the fashion of the rain forest photo, that was posted very early on.

It may be a bit of a stretch, but to this untrained eye a couple of the carvings bear a resemblance to some Celtic knot work I have seen. Great work, and great phots.

I presume that these are very modern carvings.  Where are they?

Yes, those ones are fairly new.
They are all located in New Zealand, an island nation in the southwestern Pacific Ocean.

I am impressed with your ability to work in both metal and wood. Two very different mediums to my mind.

Very nice.

And I find them similar.
Once you have an understanding of how each substance reacts to various techniques they're basically the same.
There are soft woods and hard woods, so there is, also, soft metals and hard metals. Both can be carved, bent, cut, drilled, both can have like items added to them(meaning:glueing wood to wood, welding/brazing metal to metal), both can be treated to be harder or softer, both can, also, be staind and painted, etc.
Albeit, some of the working tools may be different, mostly in the types of implements that are actually used (blades, cutters, etc.), but still very similar.

You'll have to show some of your work sometime.

 The N.Z. government has squander far  more cash on far worse projects.

 The frames are at least attractive

I rather like the concept.

Of course, it wasn't my taxes that paid for them.
