Stands at 27 CM height (about 11’‘).

The sculpture made of: Scientific Name – Prosopis Juliflora, Kind of Mesquite, Nick name – Yanbut (in Hebrew – ינבוט ).
The sculpture was carved according to the “house model” – one of my granddaughters. She sat around the table with her breakfast and I suddenly sat in front of her and I raised the camera. She opened big eyes and a little bit the mouth. She looked at me surprised, like asking me “Grandpa, what so early in the morning, I’m not totally waked up.

Dalas, in case you mean Germinate by the word ינבוט, as YINBOT but the name of the tree is YANBUT, Thanks.

Yes, Germinate or sprout. At least according to what grandmother taught me, LOL.

For too many years I haven’t used the language.

A wonderful carving. I love the the expression on her face. You should be proud of this work.
