Meet Woodstock", a very wise Elf Wizard. I could carve something personal into the back of him for no extra cost if it is something simple! He is a great companion. He is loved by everyone and is invited to all of the woodland gatherings. He is a great singer and loves singing everywhere he goes. He mostly sings of the greatness of the Spirit and how humbled he is. He measures 8 1/2" tall x 6 3/4" wide x 1" deep.

This piece is flat on the back so it can hang on the wall. I have carved a notch in the back for hanging and Signed it Wiz as well.

I don't do a lot of wizards like this. This is a very high relief carving. I carved out a lot of wood to get this effect. This is a much more difficult wood to carve than a Pine Knot. I could have done two Pine Knot wizards in the time it took to do this guy. He has a few holes left by beetle larva. I have treated the wood and guarantee that the wood is sound.

He is carved out of a maple burl. A burl is caused by the trees reaction to an agro bacteria. The tree produces many buds as if to defend itself. It is similar to a wart on a person. It has no effect on the tree. It produces some of the most amazing grain with little pins on the outside. Each of the pins could produce another tree if given the right conditions.

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.

PRIORITY USPS Shipping is included in the price of all of my carvings.
