COMMENT:  You are not reading the whole commandment and the whole council of God on this matter.  Here is the full commandment:
 

Exo 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:

Exo 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.

Notice that the commandment is against making "graven images."  In Hebrew these words are translated from "pesel" and it means "IDOLS."  So, first we are to make no IDOLS, and second we are not to WORSHIP them.

Here is further clarification on this commandment:

Deu 4:15 Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner of similitude on the day that the LORD spake unto you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire:

Deu 4:16 Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female,

Deu 4:17 The likeness of any beast that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged fowl that flieth in the air,

Deu 4:18 The likeness of any thing that creepeth on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the waters beneath the earth:

Deu 4:19 And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.
It was not wrong to make images of animals and the like, what was wrong was to make them into IDOLS, and the WORSHIP them.  God Himself instructed that "images" of heavenly and earthly things be made with reference to the construction of the Tabernacle.  Even the most holy item of furniture, the ark, had solid gold cherubim fashioned on top.

COMMENT:  We, you should NOT "choose to make a vow of a Nazarite," so
that is all I will say to that.
God be with you,
Ray
