I introduce to you “Coltrane” the Elf Wizard. He’s a very light hearted soul. He is always cheery and loving. “Cotrane” has such a wonderful energy and lifts the spirits of all that he is around. He is inspiring to all that he meets. He loves passing on his Wizdom but is a very good listener. His Gratefulness and Loving ways are the best examples to all of those who make his acquaintance. He is loved by all and welcomed in all woodland gatherings. I really like the way he turned out!! There is a lot of detail in this carving.
Come visit my etsy shop and see all of the different things that I do. Ya never know when ya might need a unique gift!!

I have flattened the back so that he hangs on the wall. He measures 11” tall x 3 1/2” wide x 3” deep.
He is carved out of an old growth pine knot. A pine knot is what a branch does when it goes into the trunk of a pine tree. The tree dies, rots and falls over, and the trunk eventually rots away leaving the knot. Very few of these are good to carve as the sun bakes them and eventually the critters eat them. It is my favorite wood to carve faces and fish with.
