This is one of my first major in the round carvings that took quite a long time to get finished. It is approx 4 Inches square and 7 inches tall, the wood is basswood.
Finished with a gel stain and rubbed to get the shadow effect then finished with several coats of clear satin finish.

Nice caricature of a “old gold panner”!
I like the features and the coloring.
