I would love to see your process for doing a rossette like this. I have tried it but I would love it if you could show me how you would carve it. It is very deep, like maybe a half inch. It was done by Konstantinos Pilarinos who used to do Greek Orthodox carving. We have many of his pieces here and I am trying to use his stuff as examples so I can learn to carve.


Hopefully the picture show on this 🙂

I will definitely look into doing this as a lesson. Can you please provide the size?


Thank you so much for considering this 🙂

The Diameter of the rossette is 3 1/2 inches on this one. The diameter of the circle is about 5 1/2 inches. let me know if you want more pictures of it

I am sorry, I think the measurements i gave were not exactly correct. Here are some pics that will explain it.

The rosette that I took a picture of is on the base of the Analogion pictured here.

The other pictures show it at a slight angle and the tape measure should with explaining the size. 🙂

Really looking forward to seeing this as a lesson, the rosette is so simple but beautiful.  The carving surrounding it is lovely too.  Thanks for putting this forward as a lesson,
