I introduce to you, “Roland” the Wizard. “Roland” is a very contemplative, wise soul. He loves life and is the most positive wizard. Peace and Joy are always with him, wherever he goes. “Roland” has a wonderful energy and is loved by all. He has a way of restoring the love that might be missing in whatever setting he finds himself in. He loves being a Wizard and passing on his ways to those who exhibit Love for their world and are ready to leave their old ways behind. This is a pretty big and heavy knot. He has a really kool shape. I love his hat!!

I have flattened the back so that he hangs on the wall. I carved a notch to hang him on. He measures 13 1/2” tall x 10 1/2” wide x 4” 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.
