Bellows

The central rosette of the bellows is from a Japanese pattern that seemed to me to imply swirling movement. The flourishing around the rosette was also symbolic of the air movement created when the bellows was worked. I carved the back of the bellows even though it is seldom seen when hung by the fireplace.
