One of my very first carvings from about 25 yrs ago. While visiting dad I recognized this piece on a shelf and realized I didn’t have a picture of it. I do now so thought i would share. Carved it from an outline drawing. made from a 4×4 piece of western cedar. Roughed it out with a sabre saw and whittled the rest. I would recommend this type of stylized design for the beginner carver since it don’t have much detail and is hard to mess up.

You can never “mess up” a carving, you only create an opportunity to use your imagination.

Great carving and subject! Like the rough and raw look of it, an interesting art piece.
