Now is the time for  sculpturing together in further detail. So I covered the parts and details I consider finished with an all natural hard wax (Osmo hard wax oil), which hardens and preserves the wood. Other parts are left untouched, so the insects can still harvest there wood there. Slowly the form of the object gets more defined. I expect we need another year or two to finish the whole.
