I mentioned to Pat about this horse carving.
This is carved from a chunk of White Pine that was struck by lightning.
It’s what they call a deep relief carving.
The dimensions are : 4” X 13 1/2” X 18”

is that a lantern hanging on the wall behind the horse? It’s all about the details. Beautiful, beautiful work – and the added specialty of it surviving a lightning strike. OH yah.

Beautiful.

Thanks Debbie. Very observant, I added the lantern to eliminate boredom in the background. It should have had a horse collar also.
The tree had fallen across the state forest trail on the road to our cabin. Somebody ahead of us had cut it up in order to get by. When we stopped the wood was still steaming a little. I picked up a few chunks, and threw them in my van. I wish I had taken more.

those darned “shoulda’s”, they always come back to haunt you. But, you did get enough to create this beautiful piece so there is the silver lining.

Dick, this is a lovely piece. I have tried a horse’s head in a rocking horse, so know the challenge.
