Kind of a sad story behind this one: A friend had a miscarriage and had chosen the hedgehog as the baby’s spiritual animal. I am not entirely sure of what that means exactly, but I hope this will bring a smile to her face.

Terrific Doug. Very nice work and you got a lot of character into that relatively small package.

Doug, is your friend Native American? It is sad but what you have done is cute. The back is impressive. Is it all by hand and what is the wood you are using?
