Well better late than never. Foison was completed and set into place above the bar on 4/23/2012. He greets anyone that enters the shop. He is composed of Red Cedar with a satin poly finish. He is a build up or lamination. (spent more time watching glue dry than carving) He sports a growler from my sons employer, one of my old cork boots, his right ear is pierced with a screw that they took out of my foot when I broke it two years ago. And he watches the door with his one good staind glass eye illuminated from behind. Though concieved and carved by me. He was illistrated by a friend that was inspired by the poem I wrote for him to set the mood. His tail, wings, leg, and head are all componets that can be removed if need be for transportation.

He looks satisfied with his hands on his belly, like he just ate some small children. Very unique piece.

Finally Foison is finished! Good for you – I have been watching you posts and was eager to see him come to life.

I love the embellishments along the way!

Beautiful work. Your “scale” work on the head/face is excellent.
