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.

Born in 1948 in Kentucky, Jim Lewis turned his woodwork skills into a unique style of folk carvings. He’s portrayed a number of different animals, often turning to mermaids and fish, and one of his carvings includes Jonah inside the body of the whale.
