An Underwater Halloween

This year’s carving is inspired by the Wangensteen Historical Library’s current exhibit, Underwater, which explores humans, health, and science in watery spaces. We have selected a few of our favorite images from the exhibit and have made stencils so you can create your own underwater-inspired carving.
