Description

This little sculpture is made from irish cypress, details are woodburnt and stars and moon are painted with white acrylic paint.
The Selkie is a creature from Irish mythology and is able to shapeshift from a seal into a woman in full moon nights.

I use the leftover parts from making cypress chairs. I have been working many years as carpenter near the ocean and I could see the seals quite often during my long stay in Ireland. They are very fascinating to me. Underneat is written Beara, which is the Irish peninsula's name where I have been and which seals have inspired me.
Cypress wood naturally and slowly turns gray.

I make also baby seals. Check wooden figurines section in my shop.
