Mascaron woodcarving
Size: 4,5'' x 2,5'' - 11cm x 6,5cm
Material: Walnut Wood
Mascaron is a representation of a human or animal ornamental face. Often grotesque or classical mythology-like heads that embellish the top center panoplies above windows, doorways or roof cornices. Their original function was to frighten away evil spirits entering the building and to remove the "evil eye". So, grotesque and hideous masks were found in temples, tombs, armor of warriors, furniture and everyday objects. Today this concept is widely adapted to become a pure decorative element. Mascarons are found in art, architecture and theater.

Composition of Grapes, Vines and Leaves
Hand carved walnut wood, highly detailed pierced relief depiction floral and bird motif. Traditional carving featuring composition of grapes with vines and leaves. Hand carved using various chisels and wood carving knives. The spiral scrolling of a grape vines and birds motif is one of the most used figures in traditional woodcarving. The spiral placement of the vines is used for expressing visual motion. Freely exploring the space, grape vine carvings represents a sort of elastic geometry. With freehand spiraling, scrolls and grape clusters evolving as elements of fluid and dynamic movement.

Hi my name is Slavica, I have always had a love for art and crafting. Wood carving is my passion and occupation. All my carvings are handmade, created with traditional tools in my studio, without any use of modern computer controlled machines. They are hand carved using various chisels and wood carving knives.
Motifs that find their way into my work are from nature, religion, people, animals, tales, stories, everyday life. They are all unique, my original work. From the creation of the project to its completion, no two carvings are identical.
Here you'll find a lot of pictures of my work. They will best describe the love and effort I put into them. My hope is that my work will reach more people, making the world a more beautiful place.
