This is my entry into the Knot Like No Other contest. I have always wanted to carve a wood spirit, and when I found a small junk of material with a knot in it I got an Idea. How did my spirit become a spirit? Well, because of the inspiration from the knot, maybe we all know now.

Great carving! I admire people who have the ability to see the project “inside” the medium they are working in.
