I introduce to you “West Willie” the Elf Wizard. He’s a very wise soul. He is always cheery, even under huge pressure. “West Willie” has such a wonderful energy and lifts the spirits of all that he is around. He is inspiring to all that he meets. He loves passing on his Wizdom but is a very good listener. Peace and Joy are always with him, wherever he goes. He is loved by all and welcomed in all woodland gatherings. The shape of this piece of wood is very special. Most of the knots that I get are straight on the sides. I love working the hair into the sweeping sides. There is a lot of detail in this carving. This is the link to him in my etsy shop:

I have flattened the back so that he hangs on the wall. He measures 14” tall x 5 1/2” wide x 2 3/4” deep.
