A character I saw one morning on Telegraph Avenue (Oakland, California) inspired The Survivor .
I don’t remember his face, so I am carving five interchangeable masks to fit on the torso.
His arms hold four masks as he tries on each to choose the right one to get through the morning.
I began thinking about The Survivor torso a long time ago.
It’s carved out of a used beam I found in the back yard of Fairfax Lumber company.
I took it home in my jeep and let it dry in my garage for several months before I started work.
The picture at left shows what The Survivor #Woodsculpture looked like recently.
Here is what the first cut looked like: http://neibert.com/portfolio/wip-waiting-at-the-workshop-door/
