carving face 22
In Fig. 41 the forehead corrugations are formed using a knife to cut a deep linę and then rounding off * with a smali fiat gouge. The wrinkles under the eyes are madę with a smali 'u' shaped gouge. The desired expression is now beginning to appear. In the fin-ished head, Figs 42, 43 and 44, this is enhanced by the irises which reveal the tact that the eyes are looking upward, thereby explaining the turrowed brow and the deepening ot the hollows at each side of the mouth. The turrows in the cheeks are sharply defined to create morę tension in the jaw.
In comparing the tinished head with the original drawings, various differences can be seen. The cor-ners of the mouth have been raised and deepened slightly to make morę of a smile. For the same reason, the cheeks have been pushed upwards as they do when the mouth forms a grin. Finally, the eyebrows have been raised to create a morę alert and hopeful look. The tinished carving is shown in Fig. 45.
