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.

Reverend Herman Hayes was a self-thought woodcarver who created a number of award-winning sculptures, fascinated with the craft from an early age. Although he had retired as a reverend, he would preach on his journeys, carrying his sculptures with him.
