Panel 20 in a series of 20 panels. Drawing of a carved, green, adze handle. At the top of the cylinder is a carved face with deep-set eyes, a small nose and a narrow chin with small open mouth. Long curving horns sit atop the forehead. Below this face is the head of a bird-like creature, with large round eyes, and a beak-like nose. Red carved circles appear across the rest of the cylinder top. Branches of a nearby tree reach around the cylinder to its front. Behind the object is a landscape of fir trees and a heavily clouded sky. The drawing is split between 2 equally sized panels, one sitting on top of the other. Covered with plexi frame.

Specific Techniques

Two boards are stacked above/below to create this panel instead of a single board, like the others in the series.
