How Obama was burned on wood

I was touched by the success of Obama 4 years before as the first African American to reach the White House.
Few months before he was able to repeat his triumph.
His tweet " Another four years sky rocketed in twitter.
I have no interest in politics, I am not an American after all.
Yet i was inspired by the story of the man.
In this project I used the Pyrography / wood burning to burn the Obama's face on the wood!!
Funny as it sounds but i enjoyed it so much
I recorded the steps from the copying of the face using carbon/graphite paper through the painting of the wood till finishing the piece.
It took me two days to finish this piece.
