This Indian is carved in butternut. I am getting ready for the Lancaster County Woodcarvers show that is held at Millersville University in Millerville PA. The show is March 8 and 9. If you make it to the show stop in at table 36 and say hello.

Hi Mike,

I hope you do well at the show. This is a very nice carving. It takes both talent and artistic ability to produce something like this. Well done.

Thanks for the post.

Be prepared to accept “Best of Show”. I like to carve, but I can’t like that. You’ve got some great talent there and this piece shows it! Wonderful work and attention to details. Let us know how you did at the show – although I suspect I know the answer anyway…

I like the use of color, just enough to make it stand out. Good luck at the show.
