Carving vase and low releif flowers

I carved and shaped the vase using traditional carving tools as I don’t have a lathe. I also used a japenese rasp to give it the desired shape. It was a 4.5 inch. 10.5 inch glued block of limewood. I then have gone on and am carving a very low releif leaves and vines on it. Its been a long process. I carved the leaves a few times, rasperased then, and started over.  I am atleast pleased with how it is comming along. Please comment and let me know if you like it. Thank you for looking,
