Found this piece of driftwood on the shore of the Chesapeke Bay area. Don’t know what kind of wood, but it carved real well. I studied it a good while before it came forth to present himself. He resides in Virginia, near where I found him.
Thanks for coming !

In every piece of wood lies its destiny, it is our task to reveal it and you excel at it.
