A little green man that is “not yoda” – by Stanley D. Saperstein … one of my father’s folk art style walking sticks with a figure head hand carved with leather ears. Mounted on a diamond will shaft.

We’ve done an assortment of sticks, staffs, and canes over the years. This one happens to stand out in bright green contrasting against a very rich warm diamond willow shaft.

That is cool, I would be afraid to break the ears off and have to keep it as a display…. Love the expression…..

The ears on a lot of his sticks are leather or that reason – flexible! And they look more realistic in leather.
