Gerardo completed this wonderful image of "Lady Justice" for my husband Brian Hudson in only five days. Brian wanted to present it to a retiring judge his group is honoring in Los Angeles. Gerardo was hesitant about doing it as he usually works in 3-dimensions. The wood is cedar, and he used stain to bring out the new justice image with a laptop!
What is unusual about Gerardo is that his images show great imagination. Prior to meeting him, the only carvings we have seen in Costa Rica are purely representational, but beautiful, made from the many unique but possibly vanishing woods found in Costa Rica.
