THE SEARCH

Wood Carving


By Randy Benedetto

 

Proverbs 2:3-6

Yes, if you call out for insight and raise your voice for understanding, if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God. For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding; 

The prospector digs in the dirt for treasure, but at the end of the day he finds true worth and wisdom in God’s Word. The donkey was completed years before the rest of the scene was completed, and the prospector was later added. Each of the 20 individual pieces was carved separately from basswood then painted with acrylic and watercolor.
