This guy isn’t a family member, but I think he would fit into anyone’s family. He sort of reminds me of what President LBJ, would have looked like in his later years.
This is an extra deep relief carving, Thats why I’m showing the three views. This is carved in Big Tooth Aspen, one of the varieties growing in MN. It has a nicer grain figure than the regular Aspen. I guess the reason they call it Big Tooth is their leaves have a sawtooth edge. I like it for carving, it’s great for fine detail, I think it’s just as good as Basswood.
It’s size: 4 1/2” X 7”
