This wood carving is of a dancing Bear with his buddy Bird under a Fir Tree. It's a wood wall hanging that would make a special Christmas gift. This is a pierced relief wood carving and is carved from a single piece of wood. I don't carve these tree carvings as often as I used to. My hands are only interested in doing them occasionally. I am retired now. I will be carving for as long as I can. I still love doing it more than anything!! This piece measures 24" tall x 12" wide x 1 3/8" thick. This carving has a lot of character!!
Each time you click the above picture you will go to another more detailed photograph of this piece. 10 pictures altogether.
I carved it out of a piece of Buckeye. The colors in this wood are so warm. It grows in the foothills of the Sierra's in California. It also grows in the Eastern US. It is a great wood to carve these tree scenes in!
The technique I use is called Pierced Relief. This piece is carved out of one piece of wood and nothing is added. I have been carving since 1971 and a tree was the first thing I carved. I have always been stimulated to carve a resemblance of a tree out of a tree. My technique has evolved over all of these years to what you see here. I keep seeing ways to make things more life like. And I love a piece to look like it is in the middle of a story.
~~~PRIORITY USPS SHIPPING IS INCLUDED IN THE PRICE OF ALL OF MY CARVINGS~~~
All of my carvings have a lacquer finish. Dusting with a feather duster or blowing off with a compressor is all that is necessary on the carved trees, fish and carved faces. I use Orange oil on the smooth surfaces. This will perk them up. I would do it as often as you polish your furniture. Once a month would keep them looking great but is not necessary.
I will contact you as soon as I get your order. I will package it that day or the next. I take it to the Post Office the next morning. If I get an order on Friday afternoon, Saturday or Sunday it will be in Monday mornings mail.
I use Priority United States postal service mail.
I do ship outside of the US. I need to know the carving that you are interested in and your complete shipping address. I will figure what it costs to ship to your address and make the changes to the listing so that you can make the purchase.
