Patsurabu Maruku
Wood Carving
By Mark Patraw

Wood and acrylic paint.
This is supposed to be my name converted into Japanese katakana characters. While the Japanese translation of my first name is correct (although I have seen "Mark" translated into the shorter "Maku" as well), I later learned that my last name isn't (I got the erroneous translation from an online Japanese » English converter). "Patara" would be a much better phonetic interpretation than "Patsurabu". This was a project I did for a college art class.
