    nice writeup there of how this was made. hope it changes how traditional sculptures are made for good. Heard from a local sculptor in my area it could take up to a year to sculpt out of wood or ceramic if were to be done manually.

    Really inspiring stuff.. keep em' coming.

    Hey,

    First of all, thank you very much for all the comments, the kind words and the top row plug - I really didn't expected such a great response...

    Let me explain the milling thing a little bit better:
    First, milling has nothing to do with traditional wood carving. By "traditional" I mean working with hammer, carving knifes and a block of wood. On a life-size sculpture, you start with the chainsaw to get rid of as much material as possible and proceed with big carving knifes to get the main shapes and planes right. Then you switch to smaller tools to carve out details. At the end you can use different sorts of sandpaper or even some sort of sander to achieve a smooth surface.

    It's quite common today, to combine milling and hand carving. Big statues are roughly produced with KUKA robot and get detailed and finished by hand for instance. That not only works with wood, but also with marble as a base material. The milling procedure is the same.

    For the production of my statues we worked on a so called 3D pantograph or copy milling machine or profiling machine or replicator (I don't know what's the exact term in English is...) They are available in different sizes and you can make copies at the ratio of 1:1, 1:2, 1:3, 1:4, 1:5 and something in between. You need one machine for every ratio though. Working on such a monster is loud, dusty, exhausting and needs constant concentration. It took almost two day to finish a row of 20 figurines.

    Simple objects with smooth surfaces are produced on a cnc copy machine, because the digital programming of the milling paths is easy and straightforward.

    Anyways, I'm still in love with traditional wood carving. I started carving a few years ago. Unfortunately I don't have much time to practice right now...

    Once again, thanks for all the great comments and the interest!

    Best regards,
    Selwy
