That may be your first original carved design but I would venture a guess that it is not your first carving. I'm not a carver but even I can recognize the skill, the difficulty and the amount of work involved in all the undercutting and deep relief you did!!
It's a beautiful piece and I would love to know more about it. Care to share things like dimensions, wood type, type of carving (hand / power / combo). And how about that lid???? That looks like it could be a story all on it's own.
