A Ooak Original Wood Carving I call “Little Dry Creek Ravine”, a tree scene that I have carved out of a piece of Big Leaf Maple Burl. It depicts a conifer Tree living life on the edge of a Dry Creek Ravine. I love these ravines when I happen by while on a forest stroll. I always wonder what it’s like way down in the depths of a ravine like this. It looks so cozy and cool. There’s a feeling of Life’s eternal evolution and change. They’re truly Magic Spots to me. But so many times only the Birds and the fish really know what it’s like down there.

It measures 12 1/4” tall x 7 3/4” wide x 1” thick

It’s a beautiful piece of Maple Burl with Birds Eyes Grain throughout the piece. A burl is usually caused by a trees reaction to an agro bacteria. It starts sending out a huge number of buds showing birds eye grain through out the burl. It is very unusual and is very interesting to look at.
