Hello Everyone,

This is my first content here and was created for this purpose. Hope you will like it.

About Vesalius

Wood is simple Acacia. Carved with knife and some power carving equipment.

100°C BLO bath for 15 mins, turpentine and beeswax mix as top coat.

The name Vesalius reflects to my anatomy interests and also the artworks by this famous

anatomist of the XVI. century. His artworks are eye catching, precise but still stylish and unique.

Forms are not over-detailed and the overall look is well balanced. There's an even distribution

of information.

My goal was to carve the frame with a sketchy appearance to depict tension and forces and try to keep

balance between function and artistic aspects.

The lanyard solution just fits to my taste. Instead of paracord I used a rough leather stripe soaked with paraffin to

reduce forces on my wrist and maintain softness. The joint is a modified version to reduce the

twisting forces and keep a fine alignment perpendicular to the frame.

Thanks for the chance to share it,

Have a nice day :wave:

I hope it dose not offend you because it is not my intention. It looks like a living animal form that is malnourished. I see it crawling across the desert in search of food. It is a functional art sculpture to me. Very elegant! I enjoy viewing it! :) Thanks for sharing.
