Sean Dyche Head in 5.5 hours
by John Adamson


I was asked by the landlady of the Royal Dyche pub in Burnley if I knew anything about football. I had just recently work out that I had successfully avoided football for 64 years, so could answer a definite NO. She had to explain who Sean Dyche was and the source of his fame. He is a football (soccer) manager and had brought tremendous success to a previously struggling Burnley Football Club. There was the stump of a pine tree in the pub grounds and she would like a portrait of Sean carved on it. She had a with a very small budget. The work took 5.5 hours. There was no time or opportunity to take all the photographs that normally be required for a portrait, so I had to work from published images sourced on Google. There was of course some fairly wild guesswork but it came right in the end.
