I introduce to you “Timber” the Elf Wizard. He really turned out great! He’s a very cheery soul. He is full of wit and charm. “Timber” has such a wonderful energy and lifts the spirits of all that he is around. He is amongst the leaders in his community as he has a sense of the Way of things. He speaks from his heart and not his mind. To Love being here and to be Grateful for all that is are the only rules that guide him. He is trusted by all who know him. There is a lot of detail for such a small carving. Nice smile and a very positive energy.

I have flattened the back so that he hangs on the wall. He measures 11” tall x 6 1/2” wide x 2 1/2” deep. This piece of wood has a great shape!

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.
