I introduce to you “Perwin” the Elf Wizard. He’s a wonderful soul. He is always content and full of wit. “Perwin” has such a wonderful energy and energizes any situation that he finds himself in. Peace and Joy guide his every action. He is tickled to add a bit of insight that brings out a little chuckle or big chuckle in even the most tense of situations bringing all involved back to what matters. LOVE AND GRATITUDE. That’s all he is about. He is always a part of the magic of it all. He is ever amazed by the doings of every moment.



I have flattened the back so that he hangs on the wall. He measures 13” tall x 5” wide x 3 1/2” deep.

This one is a real character, I’d keep my eye on this fella.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
