In each house in our cantry used to be a statue or picture of Saint Florian – the protector against fire. In our house was none so I carved one. But I gave Him to somebody and have to carve onother one. Basswood.Happy New Year!

Beautiful carving. I’m with rikkor carving is impressive. And for those of us who lack fine dexterity, it is so difficult, which makes it even more impressive.

Very impressive carving. Next time make two and keep the best one for yourself.
Or even better give away the best one.

Very nice and I love the idea “Patron Saint of firefighters….” although, while my Dad (a fighter fighter) always prayed there would not be another fire (for obvious reasons) sure seemed to love a BIG fire.
Happy New Year to you all
