** Note - I am not the artist but this was the only forum with the word "art" in it so I posted it here. I know some of you will appreciate this.

The artist, Craig Dorety, has acurately carved portions of the lunar surface into his chosen medium, wood.

I personally think these are beautiful carvings and having an interest in both wood projects and the moon, they really hit home with me. If I could afford one, I'd have one hanging on my wall.

These carvings represent segments of the moon's surface as found in the topograhical data from NASA's LRO and JAXA's KAGUYA missions. Painstaking attention is paid to the relationship of crater groups in the composition of each carving. Areas of special interest have a natural balance of crater to sea; rough to gentle in texture.

Here is a link to his site if you would like to check out more carvings. Pretty neat stuff.
