Wood Spirit Wood Carving Whimsical Christmas Gift for Dad on Etsy by Gary Burns the Treewiz, Handmade Woodworking. I introduce to you "Syrus" the Elf Wizard. He's a very wise soul. He is very calm, even under huge pressure. He has faith that if he just keeps doing the next thing, there will be time for everything. He is a very hard worker but it just isn't work to him. Peace and Joy are always with him, wherever he goes. He has a wonderful energy and is loved by all.

I have flattened the back and carved a notch in the back so that he hangs on the wall. He measures 10 3/4" tall x 2 7/8" wide x 2 3/4" 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.

The pine knots do change color over time. Some change quickly and some change slowly. They go from a light yellow to an orange color, I am assuming from the UV light. Some are deeper orange than others. This is just a heads up as the longer I have them after making them, the more different the color is from the photo. It is too much to try and take pictures and change them as the piece changes. The orange color is a much warmer color than the yellow. I like it just as well.

Here's a little story about the Earth Wizards. In the beginning, the Creator noticed the trees were defenseless. Hence He fashioned Wood Elves and Earth Wizards, kind spirited folk who labored at nurturing the trees and protecting them from those with little understanding of The Way.

Trees contain a wisdom of the past and offer hope for the future. The Elves and Wizards live on, though few in number compared to the Unknowing. Our well being depends upon our trees and environment being protected and held close to our hearts. Please help the Elves and Wizards; hold the Earth close to your heart.
