The second carving is of a seashell. The idea is that if I ever get good enough to make bookcases or desks or chairs I want to be able to do a relief carving in them to make them unique so with that in my I decided I needed to practice. This was carved out of a 5"X4" piece of pine that I had laying around. And just so you know I didn't smooth out the background on purpose. Heather and I both liked the 'rough' look of it so I left the chisel marks as they were.
