I introduce to you “Yully” the Elf Wizard. He really turned out great! He’s a very wise soul. He is always cheery and passes wonderful energy to all who are around him. “Yully” inspires the Elves to pitch in and they all have such a Wonderful time doing anything just because they are all together. He is truly inspired where ever he goes and takes advantage of every moment. He has great vision and knows just what each moment demands to offer harmony and tranquility to all that understand.

I have flattened the back so that he hangs on the wall. He measures 8” tall x 6” wide x 3” deep.

He is carved 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 faces and fish with.
