    Extraordinary. What provoked the subject?

    If I may pry, what sorts of tools do yoou use to monitor the
    left/right symmetry? I see that it can be done but I'm so sloppy.

    Thanks. I often find these little skulls and bones when out walking in the forest near my house. I collect them sometimes and I always marvel at the structures and shapes involved.
    I didnt use any tools for the symmetry and I noticed that the skulls arent actually that symetrical when looked at closely which surprised me. I dont really have much in the way of carving tools, I have 2 curved shaft gouges from pfeil, a cheap straight carpentry chisel and a dremel with a few bits.

    The attention to detail is astounding... especially with that tool set. How long did this take to make?

    Yes it is life size. I have many many of them here. I dont have to mow my lawn, they keep it manicured like a bowling green!
