Just finished this carving – special order for a customer. Santa is carving a bust of an Elf, while another Elf is showing him the date, concerned about finishing in time. Santa stands 10 inches tall, including base, which is about 13 inches wide. Carved from basswood, with pine flooring. Based on an original design by Wayne Shinlever.

That’s just adorable! I love how Santa’s expression is all “Dude, no problem.”
