Five carved seals crowded the piece of Maple Burl. They all appeared to be swimming together with wood as their water.

Seals were carved from a solid piece of Maple Burl. The uncarved part of the burl became the base for the sculpture.

A close up shot of one of the five seals carved from Maple Burl. Notice how the polished grain of the wood helps to bring the seal to life.
