it's ok

It has been awhile since I last posted someone else's work on this site, and the reason for that is pure distracted laziness. I have been in my cocoon of art for a few months now, and have really been neglecting my usual perusal of other artists and designers.
That is why I was so happy to receive a nice email from Sighn, telling me about his latest challenge - a limited edition of ONE MILLION handcut reassurances : "it's ok".
I came across this work last year and have been coveting the pieces ever since, and I think I will snatch a couple up for Christmas presents.

In his own words:
Edition of 1 Million
Released by Multi Polar Projects
Varying thickness & type of Wood (Image attached is bamboo)
Every piece is hand cut & numbered by the artist

Yes, it's a hand cut 'limited' edition of 1 million. This will probably
take the next 30-60 years to finish. It is definitely a poignant message,
in the times we are currently facing.

Also, a tree is planted through the Arbor Day Foundation for everyone sold.

Isn't that awesome? I think so.

It kinda looks like usik, a common misspelling of oosik. Made me laugh.
