Kos - Greece - Paradise beach - crystal clear waters to swim in.
One of the most beautiful and peaceful places on Kos island.
The family who runs the place have become friends of mine.
They have a collection of amazing wooden furniture and works of art carved in wood.

Philosopher, probably Confucius 551–479 BC, carved out of a single piece of wood.

yes, very different wood carving, leaving parts natural driftwood
Oct 21 2012 23:39 GMT annaschnitfink
Thank you for your comment dear Guenther. That major parts of the wood are still
natural is exactly what I like so much about these works of art. It shows respect for what nature itself did already...
