Default For an old school friend

who has had some bad news recently. I felt inspired to make this for her in the hope that it will bring her comfort and ease.
The carving is from a piece of Huon Pine and stands 28mm high and about 13mm x 13mm base area...............I made it small so that she could easily be carried in a purse etc.
Regards to All
John

John,
She is beautiful! I'm sure your friend will love it. I remember the one you did for our old friend Cliff and how much it meant to him.

Gday Mate, How's it going down under? That's a pretty cool carving, it's a nice gesture that you carved that angel for the lady. I'm sure she will see the love that you put into it every time she looks at it.

Did you use a pattern or free hand it?
