My old work now in the third dimension

150321 Lund One of the Swedish Heraldic Society’s gold medals for 2015 has been bestowed on well-known Swedish woodcarver Thorleif Aiff. At his lecture Thorleif Aiff presented his sculpture of the Society’s seal that he had cut after my model, designed many years ago.


With incredible sense for proportions, depth and rhytm, Thorleif gave the third dimension to my old work, exactly in the way that I imagined the seal in three dimensions. Thorleif was also kind to put my signature on the woodcut as in the original picture. Photo by courtesy of Thorleif Aiff.

More beautiful handcarved woodcuts of Master Thorleif can be seen on his Homepage.
