Amber Jesus

Amber Jesus
Photo By Gail

This carving of the face of Jesus was created using Baltic Amber, which is petrified tree sap that hardens over centuries and becomes a coveted gem stone. I saw a ton of amber artworks when I was on a European tour of the Baltic capitals last summer, which is trip I would recommend to anyone with enough to cash to throw down.

Potato Skull

I like that someone carved a skull out of a potato.

Also, did you see last night’s Survivor, and was it excellent or what?

Happy Thanksgiving 2007!

Guilty Bastard

Yes, I realize that OJ is actually holding a carved ham, but it is the spirit of bad taste and political incorrectness I’m trying to capture!
