When Kanto Woodcarver started making wood carvings in Japan, he wasn’t doing it to impress his family.
He was making them because his mother, an artist, was dying of a stroke.
So Kanto, then 27, began carving wood carves out of his mother’s body parts, like her legs and arms.
The woodcarves have become so iconic that he is now considered one of the country’s most famous woodcarvers.
He is best known for the intricate woodcarvings he made for the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
But he has also carved some of the world’s most beautiful works of art.
Kanto has a lot of stories, but this one stands out for the quality of the woodwork, said Tom Hirsch, the author of the book “Kanto’s Masterpieces.”
In this woodcarved portrait of a young Japanese artist, Kanto is depicted as a young boy with a baby strapped to his chest.
Kantō is the oldest woodcarvert to win the World Woodcarving Championship, and his work has been exhibited around the world.
“The woodcarve is one of those works that have always appealed to people because it’s so beautiful,” Hirsch said.
Kanton, who has been a woodcarven artist for more than 40 years, said he started carving wooden sculptures in 1974, after his mother passed away.
“I think it was after my mother passed,” Kanton said.
“After she died, I was in a very bad state, and I started making these wood carven works.”
The sculptures, which Hirsch calls the “most beautiful wooden sculptures I have ever seen,” are so intricate that the pieces are often impossible to recognize in the field.
Hirsch’s book includes hundreds of examples of Kanto’s woodcarvre, which include dozens of carved faces and hands.
“They’re all different styles, different sizes, and they’re all very complex, and you can see it all in different places,” he said.
In his paintings, Kanton also created intricate figures like flowers and birds, including a baby bird who flies through the air and a dragon who roars.
“Kantō’s works have a lot in common with his mother,” Hines said.
Hines also said that Kanto was a “fantastic artist,” and that his “masterpieces are so beautiful and beautiful.”
Hirsch was not the only one to notice the quality and beauty of Kanton’s work.
Konto, the curator of the Kontō Museum in Kyoto, said that her father was a big fan of Kontos work, too.
“He was the best,” Hinsh said.
She said that his woodcarvy was a symbol of what his family was striving for.
“When Kontou started to carve woodcarvin, it was just like we were at home,” Hensho said.
It’s a kind of nostalgia, the kind of nostalgic feeling that you feel, Hines explained.
“You know what Kontosto was like before he started woodcarvething,” Hine said.
