Here at 3000 feet in the southern Appalachias we live.in pockets of rainforest like environment. There are ancient downed trees everywhere, rotting.into the landscape.. I found this piece behind my cabin and.k ew instantly.it.should become a mask.
I call him The Warrior- he is worn and scarred, yet strong, vulnerable , and persistent.
I enjoy carving.masks.very.much.
