Empire State Carousel
This is a sketch of Mark Twain that I did as I was planning my section of the scenery panel for the carousel's inner ring of pictures. We were asked to carve frames that represented our region of New York State. Other carving groups around the state were asked to carve scenes into their panels as well. All of the panels now frame the inner ring of the carousel and can be viewed while riding the carousel. The frames are 3'x4' and consist of linden wood.Here is a picture of the Empire State Carousel as it is being readied for operation in Cooperstown, NY.
