Great carving. How long does one of those take?

Erwin,
No, I am not deaf. I was commissioned to create these for a family that wanted to have them in honor of a deaf member that passed away. I was honored to be able to create them for this very special purpose. Thank you for the compliment. I appreciate it!
Peace,
Brian
