Behind the pseudonym of Lor Dethal lies Nemanja Torlak, a writer for Widewalls intrigued and moved by diversity in art and in the lives of those who create it. It is often the unexpected that come forth and surprise us, and art is a world that allows it and makes it possible. David beats the Goliath daily, and writing about it is a pleasure.

Garland and Minnie Adkins nurtured the tradition of Kentucky wood carvings, creating a variety of such figures usually in shapes of animals. While Garland would carve horses and roosters, Minnie portrayed a plethora of different animals, while creating quilts as well.
