This lesson shows how to carve an example of the beautiful Byzantine Style on half of a homemade bellows. This distinctively stylized acanthus leaf from the 6th century is most noted as an architectural decoration from Constantinople (modern day Istanbul, Turkey) which gained popularity and spread across Europe to Italy and on to England.
In this highly detailed and practical lesson from a classical woodcarver, you see every step so you can develop your own carving abilities. It's one of those lessons you'll want to watch again and again.
