I carved this one out yesterday from a nice piece of cherry. I’m thinking of just leaving it natural vice painting but the jury is still out on it at this time. It’s about 12 inches tall x 19 inches wide.

Great carving! I’d say, put it out in the sun for awhile, to let it get some nice color, then clear coat
