Fist of Steel ....(in wood)

I started this a little over a year ago to test my new rasp and file set but after shaping the forearm I was yet again distracted by another wild project.

So on Saturday I whipped the old boy out and got stuck into carving out the fist itself.
I still need to chisel deeper into the hand to define the ring and little fingers, also all of the fingers need taking back about another 5mm to make way for the thumb (hopefully this will also get me past the block's rotting exterior- I found it in some grass(no, not that kind of grass, we incinerated that and woke up 3 days later in Luxembourg)).

Ohh, I should add that I going for a stylised Soviet era statue type of quite angular form.

 Just a tad more muscular than mine.

So that is what I shall be off to do now if I can tear myself away from listening to Rick James.
