I carved this angel's body using wood from an oak dining room table I found in La Crosse, Wisconsin a few years ago. The table was out on the curb in May, after the students had left, and was covered in shallow carvings and sharpie writing. Most were complaints. Somehow, in using the table for sculptures, I feel that I'm rescuing the wood. This sculpture stands 2 1/2 feet tall and seems to me a female guardian presence.
