"The Elephant" by Scott Cummins

Cummins of uses peeling knives, sharpened ice-cream scoops, and wood and clay carving tools to create 3-D carvings from 2-D reference images. He may be best known for his George W. Bush pumpkin, which was posted by a fan to our messageboards.

According to Cummins, a junior high school teacher in Perryton, Texas, most of his designs take about two hours to carve. This one features a bottom opening instead of a traditional top lid.
