Decorative Wood Carvings – 2D vs 3D

Isn’t every carving inherently 3 dimensional you might well ask ?

Well, yes, in the sense that carving into any material results in a surface with at least some depth, and therefore at least some 3-dimensionality. However, the distinction we’re making here is between a carved surface that is comprised of curves in 3D space, versus one comprised of lines or pocketed areas carved into a flat surface. This Dragon’s Head Pub barrel head carving incorporates examples of both. The intricate celtic weave border is 3D, while the dragon and text are 2D. Lets look into both of these styles of carving a little deeper, especially as they apply to decorative wood carvings.
