I know….it’s a bit early for Santa… but he is feeling a bit antsy and ready to show his face again :)

I carved this Saint Nick in a piece of Cottonwood bark. He is 14” tall, 3” wide and 1 1/2” thick. This carving is made

from a single piece of bark, and is carved and painted entirely by hand. Ho! Ho! Ho! :)
