I introduce to you “Luther”, a very charming Fantasy Fish that I call an Aquaknot. He loves everyone and everyone loves him. He’s a low maintenance sort of guy. “Luther” is never afraid to smile and is a great listener. He has only the most constructive criticism. He’s handy to have around and can make everything seem perfect all of the time with his great positive attitude. He is respected by the whole Aquaknot Herd! I have dyed him purple. This is the first Aquaknot that I have dyed purple. I really get a kick out of him. The color adds a lot to his personality.

He measures 9” long x 4 7/8” tall x 2” thick.
This piece is flat on the back so it can hang on the wall. I have carved a notch in the back for hanging and Signed it Wiz as well
I carved him out of an old growth pine knot. A pine knot is what a branch does when it goes into the trunk of a pine tree. The tree dies, rots and falls over, and the trunk eventually rots away leaving the knot. Very few of these are good to carve as the sun bakes them and eventually the critters eat them. It is my favorite wood to carve.
