I finally finished a full sized wild Phoenix reobelenii, the dwarf date palm.  It comes from South East Asia, China, and Indonesia.  It has been introduced to several other countries, including India, from ornamental plants that have spread and are now naturalized and found in the wild.  

It took about 6 days to finish, mostly because of the trunk detail.  Here are several photos of the new addition, including the trunk details.


Trunk detail pictures.

Amazing Very Happy 

You are doing a great job on the trunk. Looking at your last works, I thought you were improving a lot your technique on the trunks Wink 

I must say I love a lot the leaves too, I can't imagine how much time you need to spend for one leave Applause
