Feeling of Movement, Koa by Derek bencomo Bencomo

Feeling of Movement, Koa

Sometimes I can work for hours and hours on a piece. When the piece is finished I can sometimes be disappointed in the outcome.
That's what happen to this piece. 

After a few weeks of this piece sitting in a corner I decided to see if I could improve the design. I carved some negative space in to this piece, then a little more negative space. 

The transformation was like magic. From what was a "heavy" looking piece to a lively piece with much movement.
