10ft tall, one log

carved from a 10ft tall cedar log. I spent many days on scaffolding for this one. The client sent a zuni style fetish 3” tall and 1” wide and asked if I could do this only 10ft tall. Definitely a challenge. The feathers took the most work.

That is beautiful, beyond simple words!

Do you carve owls too? If so, can you point me to some pictures?

The detail in your carvings is amazing, I wish I had the patience for that.
