This is another Elm round. I fought with this carving trying to carve Chief Little Crow. I tried
using the traditional European block out style and I mowed down the results.Then I tried
the American style block out and mowed him down.I finally just let it take shape how ever it wanted too.
and than a Native American appeared Crow to be exact.(Apsa’alooke) which are known as “children
of the large beaked bird”. The Crow Nation are 50 miles south of Billings Montana.The Crow have
many interesting proverbs.The one that comes to mind for my carvings goes like this.”THE EYES OF MEN SPEAK WORDS THE TONGUE CANNOT PRONOUNCE.”
-- The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart. "Helen Keller"
