Leopard - Lazy Sunday
Pyrography and woodcut on cabinet grade Maple plywood,
96 in x 48 in x 1.75 in (244 cm x 122 cm x 4.5 cm)
This full scale portrait of a female leopard has been meticulously crafted at the hand of artist Alex Kuhn. The image is created through burning the wood with a soldering iron and carving away layers using different sizes of wood chisels. Additionally, various marbled burn marks are created using techniques of both propane and butane torches.
This piece is mounted on a custom fabricated "sunbaked orange" painted steel frame and is prepped for hanging by cleat or wire.
