Steve's Pyrography or woodburning on selected timber from one photo, or from a series of photos into one-off unique art and a very special gift - An Old Man Lion, with scars from a tough life Ipswich Queensland Australia

The Huon Pine  was such a nice piece of timber, and I thought the 'defects' would add a dimension of realism, (scars), to the harsh life of a Lion. 

2009 was the first year the Brisbane Ekka (Royal Queensland Show, Australia) has a class for Pyrography

I incorporated the 'defects' in the timber to portray scars incurred from surviving life in the wild. The timber is Tasmanian Huon Pine, a beautifully grained and fragrant timber, ideal for all types of shading and detail.

Here are the 'defects' in the timber that I incorporated into the Lion's head to give the impression of scars fro a tough life in the wild
